SANTA ANITA LOOKS TO THE FUTURE AS 75TH ANNIVERSARY MEET ENDS

Santa Anita’s 75th anniversary winter/spring meet comes to a conclusion today, with reflections on past hardships and expressions of optimism for the future. While there have been bumps in the road, the hope and intent is for a smoother journey ahead.

Five days were lost when the synthetic Pro-Ride main track failed to drain properly in isolated areas, and dwindling horse population at times made for less-than-ideal field sizes.

IT’S ALL ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT FOR SANTA ANITA’S ‘MUSIC MAN’

Jay Cohen is Santa Anita’s “Music Man,” only without the scam antics of Professor Harold Hill, the character portrayed by Robert Preston in Meredith Willson’s smash Broadway blockbuster of 1957 and subsequent 1962 hit film.

For Cohen, it’s not about Trouble with a capital T, but strictly about entertaining, something he does with panache.

Cohen is as much a part of Santa Anita’s rich tradition as Trevor Denman’s calls and the Seabiscuit statue. When fans come to Santa Anita, Cohen is music to their ears.

SANTA ANITA CHAMP BEJARANO SEEKS VICTORY IN SUNDAY FINALE

Rafael Bejarano rides prohibitive favorite Bourbon Bay in the final race of the meet Sunday, the Grade II, $150,000 San Juan Capistrano Invitational Handicap at about 1 3/4 miles on turf. Whether he finishes first or not, the 27-year-old jockey will go out a winner.

He has clinched his third straight Santa Anita riding title. Through Thursday and with three racing days left in the meet, he held an insurmountable 90-70 lead over runner-up Joel Rosario.
