Racing board cancels monthly meeting


ARCADIA, Calif. – The California Horse Racing Board has canceled its monthly meeting at Santa Anita next Thursday because of a lack of need, according to Rick Baedeker, executive director of the racing board.

Beadeker said there was not a sufficient number of items scheduled for discussion to ask commissioners and racing executives from throughout the state to convene for the meeting. The next scheduled meeting will take place Feb. 25 at Santa Anita.

“We want the meetings to be meaningful for people,” Baedeker said.
