Horse legends such as Seabiscuit, Lava Man, Citation & Zenyatta lived and raced on the track, with legendary Seabiscuit winning 1938's inaugural running of the Hollywood Gold Cup at Hollywood Park. Trainers such as Jack Van Berg, Bobby Frankel, Charlie Whittingham, Bob Baffert, Richard Mandella and Doug O' Neill have trained there. Jockeys like Red Pollard (Seabiscuit), Pat Day, Chantal Sutherland, and Mike Smith made horse-racing history on these grounds. Bing Crosby and Walt Disney are a few of the famous luminaries who contributed to its history! In1984, Hollywood Park held the first-ever World Champion
Breeders' Cup. Don't let America lose this history!
Hollywood Park's Infield Lake also has a young flock of flamingos originating from the Hialeah Park Racetrack and Casino in Miami, Florida. The Flamingos (nicknamed "The Breeder's Flock" because they are the ONLY fertile flock in the USA and reside on infield of the horse tracks) The original flock (12 birds) were imported from Cuba in the 1960's and have increased to nearly 500-strong. If we preserve the habitat at Hollywood Park, San Diego Zoo experts predict the young Breeder's Flock could increase to 400-500 birds by 2070!
