Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989. Early action at the present-day site of Santa Anita racetrack, part of Lucky Baldwin's original estate. In 1933, Hollywood director Hal Roach and San Francisco dentist Dr. Charles Strub formed the Los Angeles Turf Club and raised funds to build a track; designed by architect Gordon Kaufman, Santa Anita opened on Christmas Day, 1934. The remains of Baldwin's four top horses--Emperor of Norfolk, Volante, Silver Cloud, and Rel El Santa Anita--can be found in the paddock area, under his trademark Maltese Cross.
