75-year old Hollywood Park to close in December

LOS ANGELES - Hollywood Park will close by year's end and the 75-year-old racetrack property in Inglewood will be developed by its owner.

Track President Jack Liebau says the land in the Los Angeles suburb now is worth more, and racing will end when the autumn meet concludes on Dec. 22.

The track opened in 1938 under the direction of movie moguls Jack and Harry Warner. Among the star horses that ran at Hollywood Park were Seabiscuit, and Triple Crown winners Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed.
