Hovdey on Huntsville

ARCADIA, Calif. (Mar. 14, 2013) -- A mile and a half grass race at Santa Anita offers both spectators and competitors a fanciful change of pace, starting as it does about three-quarters of the way up the hillside turf course,

with the gate set in a notch that points the field at a sloping left-hand turn before they gallop across the dirt strip and onto the flat of the grass course proper. http://www.drf.com/news/jay-hovdey-huntsville-looks-give-abrams-thrill-san-luis-rey
