January 20, 2001|By LOS ANGELES TIMES

LOS ANGELES - The detente between Frank Stronach and the National Thoroughbred Racing Association means that the Breeders' Cup is heading back to Santa Anita Park.

Sherwood Chillingworth, executive vice president of the Oak Tree Racing Association, which, as a Santa Anita tenant, was host to Breeders' Cups in 1986 and 1993, said that no contract has been signed for racing's big year-end day in 2002, but other sources indicated that the Breeders' Cup and Oak Tree are close to a deal.

The Breeders' Cup is a partner of the NTRA.
