The following information was released by Los Alamitos Race Course (LARC).

Horses were back on the track training at 6 a.m. at Los Alamitos Race Course following the unveiling of the new mile oval on Tuesday morning.

“The mile track is open for business,” said track consultant Brad McKinzie.

Trainers conditioned their horses on the newly expanded mile track until 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Training will resume early Wednesday morning. Thoroughbred trainers from across town are currently moving into the Los Alamitos barn area and their horses will likely starting training on the track as early as this weekend.

“By next Tuesday, we’ll see a lot of new horses on this track.” McKinzie added.

In addition to serving its current horse population, the Orange County oval will also operate as stabling and training facility for top tier Thoroughbreds in the Southern California circuit.

Los Alamitos will also host five weeks of daytime Thoroughbred racing in addition to its existing nighttime Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred racing meet.

Los Alamitos will conduct a two week Thoroughbred daytime meet starting on Thursday, July 3 through Sunday, July 13 and a three week Thoroughbred daytime meet on Thursday, December 4 through Sunday, December 21.
