After purchasing one of the nation's most celebrated and storied racetracks in 2005, Bay Meadows Land Co, (BMLC) reportedly agreed to rebuild Hollywood Parks' impressive resources, and bring racing to a new generation. Three years later, upon finalizing "zoning entitlements," BMLC is gearing up to demolish the famed track, founded by studio mogul, Jack Warner. The developers plan to build a low-cost housing and retail development on a track where Triple Crown winners journeyed their way into racing history (including Affirmed, Seabiscuit, Citation and Count Fleet) and where the world's top jockeys and thoroughbreds continue to race each year.
Thousands of the Park's fans and loyal staff are reportedly grieving over the historic park's inevitable closure----which celebrated its 70th birthday in 2008. Many question why the City of Inglewood did not make Hollywood Park a landmark long ago. Some say, historical sites are a part of our disposable culture.
