The Santa Anita Foundation has give $27, 200,000 to assorted charitable and benevolent organizations since opening day.
There have been some 120,000,00 people who have been to Santa Anita Park over the last 70+ years.

Bettors at the park have wagered a total of $43,595,744,634, or almost 43.6 BILLION dollars.
