"The Santa Anita Racetrack was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in 2006, but remains threatened by the current owners' expansion plans. In April 2007, the Arcadia City Council approved a plan to develop an 830,000 square foot commercial, retail, and office complex on the south parking area of the racetrack, where barracks once housed thousands of interned Japanese Americans. The project proposes to demolish the 1938 Saddling Barn and South Ticket Gate, and includes plans to insert a simulcast center in the historic grandstand. The Los Angeles Conservancy continues to monitor the project."
