Golden Gate extends four-day weeks


Golden Gate Fields officials received approval from the California Horse Race Board to continue four-day race weeks for the first two weeks in May. The track will run on a Thursday through Sunday schedule.

Golden Gate Fields has run four-day weeks throughout its current meet, racing on a Thursday through Sunday schedule while Santa Anita conducted its meeting. Golden Gate ran four-day weeks during the first two weeks of the Hollywood Park meet, which opened April 21, running Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday with Thursday dark.

Golden Gate will continue its four-day weeks even with Hollywood Park beginning its five-day weeks on May 5.
