Santa Anita cancels Thursday race program ahead of rainstorm

With another significant rainstorm taking aim at the Southland, Santa Anita Park Monday canceled its scheduled Thursday racing program.

The track, which normally runs races Friday through Sunday, was running a special post-holiday program on Monday but will be dark Tuesday and Wednesday, as scheduled, as well as on Thursday, which was another bonus racing day.

Live racing will return Friday with a nine-race card starting at 12:30 p.m.

Three turf stakes races that had been scheduled for Thursday were moved to the weekend, with the weather forecast improved.

The Grade 3 Robert J. Frankel will now be run on Saturday, with two races featuring 2-year-olds, the Eddie Logan and the Blue Norther, now scheduled for Sunday, track officials said.
