I used to spend a ton of time at PM, when I lived out there years back. Would draw large crowds on triple crown days, decent crowds on big NY/CA days through simulcast, but the local racing wasn’t promoted much at all. The fact that it’s in the city and seemed to be in fairly decent condition makes me think there’s some potential. During the rainy winter meet it’s virtually impossible to attract/host anything close to stakes caliber racing. But with the right vision and some deep pockets things could be better. There’s a diverse customer base, coupled with “new money” coming into the area. I hope better days are ahead.

Total unrealistic Pipe dream, but after Del Mar and before the BC, when the weather’s perfect, if money was there, it’d be an ideal time for a short boutique type meet w some BC prep types. Spend money and carve out your own little niche in September.
