According to a story from C-Fax 1070, Sandown Park in British Columbia will be closing its doors for good
Howard Blank, a spokesperson for the track’s operator, Great Canadian Gaming, confirmed there will be no living racing dates at Sandown this summer. An official closing date has yet to be determined.
"They [Great Canadian Gaming] were leasing the property as you know, and I think we would,” said Mayor Alice Finnal. “We're hoping to meet at some point in the near future with the owner, to see what prospects or proposals they may have for that property".
Sandown Park hasn’t featured live racing since 2008, but it has offered simulcast wagering from other tracks.
