Turf Paradise used to have to close when it rained; there was nothing to the dirt-track surface underneath. Rock-hard caliche wasn’t conducive to adequate drainage. Indeed, they used to have to switch to the turf the races that had originally been written for the dirt. Turf Paradise! Santa Anita 2019, meet Turf Paradise, circa 1994!
Turf Paradise actually better; Turf Paradise knows what it is, need not pretend! Santa Anita 2019, meet Turf Paradise, which always has been authentic! Thank you!

P.S. SoCal racing takes itself way too seriously. It’s like watching the SAG awards where they all thump their chests and say, ‘I’m an actor, dammit!’ So it is in SoCal, with these All Access programmes on the racing channel, plus the ‘I am Horse Racing’ and ‘BORN INTO THE SPORT, DAMMIT BORN INTO THE SPORT, DAMMIT! LOOK AT ME! I WAS BORN INTO THE SPORT, DAMMIT!’ commercials on the SOcial MEdia. For our money, Northern California doing it right, living the right-sized life. The key to all recovery: getting to the right size. Thank you, Northern California! Thank you!
