Hollywood Park is a major top tier racetrack, but it's not nearly as nice as Santa Anita in Arcadia, CA. However, they do have Friday night racing, which can be really fun to go to with a bunch of friends. The track, built in 1938, is also a little pricier than Santa Anita (by a couple of bucks for each admission level), which I can't explain. Still, there are many important stakes races here with many of the country's top horses and jockeys coming to vie for the Hollywood Gold Cup and Hollywood Derby. Also, there is a casino there which is popular with poker players. Located right next to LAX, so planes roar directly overhead frequently.
