by | 02.14.2018 | 5:09pm

With a 10-race card on tap this Saturday, Santa Anita Park has announced there will be a special early first post time of 12 noon.  The grade II, $200,000 Buena Vista Stakes, for older fillies and mares at one mile on turf, has been carded as race seven, with approximate post time at 3 p.m. PT.

This Saturday marks the second consecutive Saturday that Santa Anita has opted to go with an early 12 noon post time.  Last Saturday's 10-race card, which included four graded stakes, produced a total pari-mutuel handle of $13,713,042, a $3.7 million increase over the corresponding date one year ago which had one fewer race and was conducted over a wet/fast main track and a turf course that was listed as good.

A total of 99 horses have been entered for Saturday, with 97 eligible to run, putting average field size for the 10-race program at 9.7 runners per race.  Saturday's entries are now available at santaanita.com.  For additional information, please call (626) 574-RACE.
