Petition Statement
This petition has been created to Preserve Historic Iconic Hollywood Park Race Track and Wildlife Sanctuary. There is a groundswell of support from within the USA and from horse racing fans around the world who insist that Hollywood Park Racetrack be preserved as a functioning racetrack and USA National Treasure and historic Landmark today and for future generations to enjoy.

Petition Background
JOIN the petition to preserve the historic iconic California landmark, Hollywood Park Racetrack and Wildlife sanctuary, and to list it as one of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places in 2014 with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Our goal is to leverage our local racing community and the 1000's of fans coming to California for the World Breeder's Cup to have 10,000 signatures to deliver to the National Trust in March 2014 to give our nomination of Hollywood Park a jump start out of the gates so that we will have enough signatures for the National Trust by March 30th 2013 when the voting ends. 
 
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!

The Breeder's Flock Logo for Hollywood Park 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!
