The famous Santa Anita Racetrack, a cornerstone of the city of Arcadia, California, was established in 1934. It has a long and varied legacy: from night markets, circuses, high school graduation ceremonies, major horse races, and band reviews, to, unfortunately, the United States' Japanese internment system and horse deaths. In this podcast, the team at Keepin' It Arcadia discusses the history and the significance of the Santa Anita Racetrack through several one-on-one interviews with experienced journalists, citizens of Arcadia, a former Japanese internee, employees at the racetrack, and the city mayor to establish connections to the racetrack's past and success today. Tune in to a story that immerses listeners in the rich and diverse heritage of a Californian landmark.
