    Sunshine Millions - Santa Anita Park racetrack, Arcadia, California, U.S.A. - Jan. 26, 2008 Miraculously salvaged after days of rain, the wet top layer was scraped to the outside rail. Marketed as an all-weather surface, Cushion Track is anything but. Santa Anita was forced to install it by California Horse Racing Board mandate. New World Record - 6 Furlongs in 1:06:53 Bob Black Jack set the new world record winning the Sunshine Millions Dash. This track is hard and fast, yet somehow remains safe. Beginning the week of February 3, a liquid binder will be applied that will hopefully alleviate drainage problems.If this doesn't work, Santa Anita will lose many more days to rain.
