Hollywood Park To Auction Off Memorabilia This Weekend

INGLEWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Antiques from the Hollywood Park racetrack will be sold at auction this weekend in Inglewood.

“On Friday we’re going to start with the general equipment, track equipment, restaurant equipment . . . and then on Saturday we’ll move to the memorabilia,” Mark Weitz, lead auctioneer, said.

Pieces of memorabilia include photos, art, collectables signed by jockeys and more.

Hollywood Park closed for good on Dec. 22 after 75 years of racing that featured such thoroughbred stars as Seabiscuit, Triple Crown winners Citation, Seattle Slew and Affirmed, and superstar mare Zenyatta.

The park, which was opened in 1938 by Warner Bros.,will be redeveloped into a housing and retail center later this year after facility leaders decided the land was too valuable for its current use.

The public can bid on items through a live auction or online through GA Global Partners.
