Mayor Antonio Villar in Chatsworth.
What or who would get Mayor Antonio Villar to journey back east to Kentucky's Churchill Downs for a weekend with the Horse Racing crowd at the 2011 Breeder's Cup? maybe the City of Arcadia should put Villar on retainer.
On a sparkling Kentucky fall afternoon, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa stood in a Breeders' Cup winner's circle in the shrine of horse racing and didn't pause to proclaim that his metropolis can do better by staging the event routinely at Santa Anita. (whoops, Santa Anita is located in the City of Arcadia)
From the Los Angeles Times on the "close friend connection" on this trip..............
He was accompanied by Santa Anita executive Greg Avioli and California Horse Racing Board Executive Director Keith Brackpool for Saturday's informal talks.
The reality behind this trip that won't appear in the Los Angeles Times .............
PARTY TIME! For old friends Keith and Tony among the "phillies" at Churchill Downs.
