Del Mar makes additional adjustment to its turf racing

The changes, which will take effect immediately, will consist of the following items:

Last year for Del Mar Union School District transitional kindergarten

The Del Mar Union School District is entering the last school year where it will be required to offer transitional kindergarten class — so far. Legislation is pending that would make it mandatory for districts to offer the program to low-income students. DMUSD’s transitional kindergarten (TK) serves a quarter of its population and to date will bring an additional 87 students to the district in the 2014-15 school year.

Del Mar suspends turf racing following another injury

Thoroughbred racing on the turf course at Del Mar was suspended for the rest of the week after a horse was seriously injured in a race July 31, the latest in a string of injuries and deaths at the track this
month.
In announcing the suspension, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club expressed
“deep sorrow” over the latest injury.
“We will continue efforts to improve the course during this down time
and hope to resume racing on it in the near future,” according to a statement.
The horse, a 4-year-old filly named Serious, suffered a sesamoid bone
injury in her left foreleg, track officials told The Orange County Register.
Officials originally said the horse was euthanized, but later said her
owners had sought veterinary care for her against the advice of the track
veterinarian, the newspaper reported.
Four other horses suffered fatal injuries on the turf track this month
and today’s injury was the first since measures intended to enhance safety on
the course were undertaken, according to news reports.
Races that had been scheduled to take place on the turf course will be
moved to the track’s Polytrack course, Del Mar officials said.
Four other horses have suffered fatal injuries on the track during this
year’s thoroughbred meet, which began on July 17.
