With heavy rain forecast for this weekend, Santa Anita has canceled live racing on Saturday, Mar. 30 and Sunday, Mar. 31, the track said in a Thursday release.

According to the National Weather Service, rain is expected to arrive in the area Friday evening and remain throughout the weekend. A makeup card will be added next Thursday, Apr. 4, with entries to be taken this coming Saturday.

The racing that day will include both the GIII Wilshire S., which was scheduled for Saturday, and the GIII American S. that was set to be run this Sunday.

In addition to Thursday’s card, Santa Anita plans to run extra races Friday through Sunday. All races in the condition book for this weekend will be offered back next week.

As a result of the cancellations, no Coast-to-Coast Pick 5 wagers will be offered this weekend. 1/ST Racing was scheduled to seed Saturday’s Coast-to-Coast pool with an additional $100,000. That will now take place with the Coast-to-Coast Pick 5 on Sunday, Apr. 7.

The popular Easter Egg Hunt, the largest in the San Gabriel Valley, that was scheduled for Sunday, will take place in the Santa Anita infield on Sunday, Apr. 7, while the infield carnival will be offered all four days next week–Thursday through Sunday.

Next weekend’s Santa Anita Derby card will be drawn on Wednesday, Apr. 6.
