Santa Anita Park 🏇🏾// Sun., March 17th, 2024



Happy St. Patrick's Day! 🍀🍻🇮🇪🍀


It seems only fitting that we find ourselves in Arcadia, CA, today, playing the ponies at Santa Anita Park, given that St. Patrick's brother-in-law, Murry, was from Arcadia. Legend has it that Murry was the one who came up with the idea for green beer. (see below for some slightly more accurate facts about Paddy)


Today's card includes 9 races, with the featured race coming in R7, the 100K Irish O'Brien S.. This 6 1/2 furlong race will be run on SA's famed downhill turf course for Golden St. eligible or CA-sired fillies and mares, four years and up. BTW - next Saturday starts the period of 100 pt. Win-&-In Derby prep races with the G2 Louisiana Derby at Fair Grounds & the G3 Jeff Ruby Steaks at Turfway Park. You just feel the excitement building toward that first Saturday in May. 🏇


It's time to order that pint of green beer (our very own Mr. Lundin LOVES the stuff) and enjoy some great racing from Southern California.

From our friends at babbel.com


"Saint Patrick himself wasn’t Irish, but perhaps that’s fitting for the most widely celebrated national holiday — even in places without big Irish populations. Saint Patrick is believed actually to be British, but he became a priest after he was kidnapped and brought to Ireland as a slave. Today, he is revered as the Patron Saint of Ireland for bringing Christianity to the country. Supposedly, he also drove all the snakes out of Ireland, which is convenient for him, considering Ireland never had snakes. (It’s likely that the “snakes” were a metaphor for pagans and non-believers.)"


"By the way, if you want to stay true to the legacy of this holiday, “St. Patrick’s Day” is the correct abbreviation—not “St. Patrick’s Day.” “Patrick” comes from the Gaelic name Pádraig.
