‘Luck’ To Hold Open Casting Call February 12,
Season Two At Santa Anita Set To Begin Production

HBO’s LUCK, which was recently picked up for a second season by the cable network, is seeking all types of every day race track characters and employees and is encouraging them to participate in an open casting call at Santa Anita on Sunday, Feb. 12.
LUCK, which is written and produced by David Milch and is directed by Michael Mann, stars Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, John Ortiz and many others and is currently airing on HBO on Sunday nights at 9 p.m.
Casting for racetrack employees will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Top ’O the Stretch adjacent to Clockers’ Corner and open casting will take place in Santa Anita’s paddock area, just north of the Seabiscuit Walking Ring from 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
All participants are asked to bring a picture of themselves and to meet casting directors from Christopher Gray Casting.
“This is a good opportunity for many of our employees and fans to be a part of a major league television production and to pick up some extra income,” said Pete Siberell, Santa Anita’s Director of Special Projects. “We had approximately 500 extras involved with Season One, and I would expect there would be a similar opportunity with Season Two.
“Having a series of this magnitude in production here at Santa Anita is a win-win for us and the community. Anyone who has seen the first two episodes knows how beautiful Santa Anita looks and when you factor in all the economic plusses, from the actors, technicians, grips, catering, etc, this show is generating a lot of jobs and a lot of revenue for the community, across the board.”
Santa Anita’s current winter/spring meeting runs through April 22. For more information regarding LUCK, fans are encouraged to visit www.santaanitalive.com, or www.hbo.com.
