Under strong recommendation from California Governor Gavin Newsom, Los Alamitos Race Course will reluctantly close to the public for live racing and simulcasting effective today. Los Alamitos will run its scheduled live Saturday and Sunday evening programs with only personnel licensed by California Horse Racing Board and essential racetrack staff permitted inside the facility.
Los Alamitos Race Course is not racing on Friday night due to the heavy rains in Southern California this week. Track management will continue to closely monitor in real time the latest knowledge and information regarding COVID-19 with the well-being and safety of our guests, race participants and staff remaining our highest priority.
The Saturday and Sunday live racing program can be viewed on “The Quarters” on TVG plus on approved advance deposit wagering partners and at some simulcast satellite facilities in California and nationally. Racing fans are also able to enjoy the live racing action plus race replays for free at losalamitos.com. First post time on Saturday is 6 p.m. with the eight-race card featuring the Harbor Beach Handicap. Sunday’s eight-race card will start at 5:30 p.m.
Should the Governor change his recommendation, Los Alamitos Race Course will make the appropriate changes to our simulcasting operations and live racing programs. The 70th season of racing at Los Alamitos continues every weekend through the conclusion of the meet on Sunday, December 22. For more information and updates visit losalamitos.com.
