INGLEWOOD, Calif. (October 31, 2013)—The DVD commemorating the 75th anniversary of Hollywood Park will be broadcast on Television Games Network (TVG) Thursday, Nov. 7.
The airing of the DVD – 7:30 a.m.-9 a.m. PST – coincides with the opening of the 2013 Autumn meet, the final season of racing at the legendary track.
The 27-day meet begins Nov. 7 and continues through Sunday, Dec. 22. Post time is 12:30 p.m. with one exception: 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 28 (Thanksgiving Day).
Titled “Celebrating 75 Sensational Years: The History of Hollywood Park,’’ the production offers a look back at the Track of the Lakes and Flowers, founded 75 years ago by Jack and Harry Warner with help from many of their friends and counterparts in show business.
Included in the DVD – which was given away to fans on Hollywood Gold Cup Day (July 6) during the Spring/Summer meet – are numerous clips and interviews, plus an opportunity to see some of racing’s greatest stars in action at Hollywood Park.
Among those featured are Seabiscuit, winner of the inaugural Gold Cup in 1938, Swaps, widely considered the greatest California bred in history, three-time Gold Cup winners Native Diver and Lava Man, and, of course, Zenyatta, who earned eight of her 19 victories at her home track.
