They do have back up plans but decline to say what it is.

At this point Hollendorfer can enter horses, if he does they will get all the info and decide if can race after reviewing all the facts.

Hopefully SA will have lots of dry weather this summer and the track will improve. I also hope they inspect the track-they certainly have enough time.

thought the Gov just ordereed it shut down,,,,,,but just for now? Ouch for the horses in Breeders Cup,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,would never agree that that is proper,,,,,,,,shut it down forever. I do understand that other tracks have fatalities, too,,,,,,in fact, the only race I ever attended at 
Arlington, a horse dropped dead at the end of his race,,,,,,no attention, CPR,,,,,,,just waited for the truck to drag away,,,,,,,,,,,,,last race for me.....

At PARX, many years ago, I saw a horse drop down (found out later he had a heart attack) and we accidently saw one being euthanized.  It was a windy day so the cover moved and we saw it. ... so sad...

I do not believe SA should be shut down permanently - I can only hope they take a good look at the track while it is closed in time for the Breeders' Cup races. I saw an interview about it on NBC Saturday, but it was chopped for local storm coverage around here.
