ARCADIA, Calif. (April 14, 2010)—Santa Anita’s highly acclaimed FrontRunner Restaurant will remain open to the public following Santa Anita’s winter/spring meeting, which concludes Sunday, April 18 and will remain open the year ’round.

FrontRunner, which is completely glass-enclosed, sits high atop the iconic Santa Anita grandstand and affords patrons a panoramic view of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains and offers fine dining at affordable prices.

Each season brings a new variety of California cuisine to Arcadia’s most spectacular culinary setting. FrontRunner executive chef Eric Maranowski procures regional cuisine with influences rooted throughout the United States and the world and FrontRunner’s famous Chesapeake Bay Jumbo Lump Crab Cake remains as popular today as it was when FrontRunner opened in 1999.

High energy and a youthful, vibrant atmosphere are synonymous with FrontRunner and its 215 foot-long bar is a fitting accompaniment. A world-class beer, wine and cocktail menu compliment the one-of-a-kind long-bar’s unique ambiance.
