Hollywood Park

Address: 1050 S Prairie Ave, Inglewood, CA 90305, United States


Also known as Bet Fair Hollywood Park, the Race Track is located in Inglewood and is about 3 miles from LAX. It has hosted racing events since it opened in 1938, including notable races such as the annual Hollywood Gold Cup, American Oaks Invitational and the Hollywood Derby. The track  was also the location for the Breeders' Cup in 1984, 1987 and 1997.

The legendary Seabiscuit won the inaugural running of the Hollywood Gold Cup, the track's signature race. This same event was won 11 times by other "Horse of the Year" winners.

Starting in 2014, racing will be moved to Santa Anita Park and Del Mar Racetrack. In May of 2013, it was announced that Hollywood Park would be closing at the end of their fall racing season in 2013. Hollywood Park president, F. Jack Liebau stated that the 260 acres on which the track sits "now simply has a higher and better use," and that "in the absence of a favorable change in racing's business model, the ultimate development of the Hollywood property was inevitable."
