Santa Anita Park was originally called “Rancho Anita Park” and had many a owners until it was closed in 1909 and later burned in 1912. In 1933, California legalized parimutuel wagering and several investor groups worked to open racecourses. Two groups combined to form Los Angeles Turf Club and reopened the track on christmas day in 1934, making it the first racecourse in California. Today, Santa Anita Park occupies roughly 320 acres and is a thoroughbred racecourse in Arcadia, California, United States. It offers some of the most prominent racing events in the United States during the winter and spring. With its backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains, it is considered by many to be the world's most beautiful racecourse.
