ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2012)—For the first time ever, Santa Anita is offering “Pumpkin Patch Family Days” in its spacious Infield area every weekend throughout the current Autumn Meet, which run through Nov. 4.
“We want families to know there’s something for everyone here in our Infield every weekend,” said John Niedzwiedz, Santa Anita Senior Director of Marketing. “The pumpkins were a big hit the first weekend and we expect to have a lot of folks coming out for more over the next month. We’re going to have some great racing to go along with all the activities we offer, and then to be able to take a pumpkin home for Halloween or Thanksgiving is the icing on the cake.”
Santa Anita will offer a special five-day week of racing through Monday, Oct. 8, which is Columbus Day. The Infield area will be open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
First post time throughout the meet will be at 1 p.m., with the exception of the two-day Breeders’ Cup on Nov. 2 & 3.
