Animator and filmmaker Walt Disney (1901-1966) was one of a number of Hollywood celebrities who invested in the building of Hollywood Park. (See Michael Barrier, The Animated Man: A Life of Walt Disney, [Berkeley: University of California Press, 2007], p. 134.)

In 2011, Hollywood Park's race course had a 1.811 km dirt oval track and a 1.6 km turf oval. The grandstand could seat 10,000. A cushion track racing surface was installed c. 2010 and enabled this track to meet the Horse Racing Boards guidelines. The first Breeders' Cup was held at Hollywood Park.

Arthur Froelich, who developed something of a specialty designing horse racing facilities, worked at Hollywood Park.
