Bay Meadows explores moving


The Bay Meadows Land Company, which owns and runs Bay Meadows as well as Hollywood Park, has hired the real estate broker Collier International to find a possible alternative location for Bay Meadows, company spokesman Adam Alberti confirmed Tuesday.

According to the San Mateo Daily Journal, the company is looking to possibly relocate Bay Meadows to an area where the land is less expensive and the community would be receptive to expanded gaming at the track.

Bay Meadows has been seeking legislation that would allow slots at racetracks in the state, but San Mateo, where Bay Meadows is located, has rejected efforts to allow increased gaming at the track.
