I read an article about Los Alamitos might be expanding to accommodate thoroughbreds next year. HOL might stop racing in 2014 and they think Los Al would get two 3 week meets and the rest of HOL dates would go to DMR and SAX. They are also speculating that Oak Tree might move to Los Al. They want to keep Los Al a dirt track that would be a little less than a mile after expanding. Anyone else hear news about this?

"Los Alamitos withdrew an offer Tuesday to expand its racetrack to accommodate Thoroughbred racing and training beginning in 2014, citing disagreements with the California Thoroughbred Trainers over the proposed racetrack expansion and a desire to avoid a showdown with Fairplex Park on acquiring racing dates.
Brad McKinzie, a consultant with Los Alamitos, said Tuesday that track owner Ed Allred could resume discussions about an expansion, if Thoroughbred industry officials deem the Fairplex Park proposal unsatisfactory..."
