Effect of rain on Cali racetracks

Sounds like California is really getting pounded by all the storms, but how is it effecting Santa Anita’s meet, as well as Northern California? I can’t help but remember all of the breakdowns years ago in the midst of similar rainy conditions and all the controversy it caused. Now, I realize that it was on an artificial surface, but was the only major cause? I certainly don’t want to see something similar this time.

Golden Gate Fields closed for a couple of days due to the weather. No training and no racing. Despite the track being synthetic, there were drainage problems underneath.

Santa Anita canceled racing today due to heavy rain.
