Los Alamitos Race Track Expansion Project

los_alamitos_race_trackCYPRESS CA (FNP) – The Cypress City Council will hold a meeting Monday night to discuss improvements at the Los Alamitos Race Course which is located in the city of Cypress. Management of the track is proposing increasing the length of the course from 5/8 mile to 1 mile.

The owners also want to modify the existing artificial lake and extend the existing fence. They will also need to move the camera tower. The track may also be used for training thoroughbred horses and the potential for thoroughbred racing 20 days each year.

Douglas Hawkins, the Planning Manager for Cypress, says the meeting will start at 7PM in the City Council Chambers on Ball Road. With the implementation of the mitigation measures recommended in the Initial Study, there would be no “anticipated” significant effects on the environment, according to Hawkins.

Los Alamitos is primarily known for their quarter horse racing. They offer four races per year with purses over $1 million, more than any other course in the U.S. The first pari-mutual meet was held in 1951.

The track will offer live racing through December 22nd Friday to Sunday. On Friday the live post time is 7PM. On Saturday the first race starts at 6PM and on Sunday it starts at 5PM. There is free parking but a general admission charge of $3.00.
