Bay Meadows shifts opener


The Bay Meadows spring meeting, originally scheduled to open Monday, has shifted its starting date to Wednesday. The track will be open for six straight days opening week, through Monday, Feb. 11.

The Golden Gate winter meeting ends Sunday. Pushing back the start of the Bay Meadows meet gives Northern California's horsemen and track employees three days between meets rather than one day.

The Bay Meadows meet ends May 11.
