Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., has announced that highly respected trackman Dennis Moore has been retained as a consultant and will be on-site Tuesday afternoon as a precautionary measure with regard to the condition of the one-mile main track.
Moore, 69, who has more than 46 years of experience working with racing surfaces in California and worldwide, served as Santa Anita track superintendent from 2014 until his retirement this past Dec. 31. Currently employed as track superintendent at both Del Mar and Los Alamitos, Moore was chiefly responsible for providing Santa Anita with the “El Segundo sand” that was installed to universal acclaim in 2014.
The son of a track superintendent, Moore grew up in racing and in addition to his father, Bob, his brother Ron has also served in the same role at various tracks in California.
An avid horseman and animal lover, human and equine safety are of paramount importance to Moore.
