Paint Shop Preserves Racetrack History

On the southwest corner of Maddy Equine Lab, wooden striped racing poles are scattered around the western exterior of the building. These wooden poles were originally used as markers at the Tanforan Racetrack in San Bruno, which operated from 1899 to 1964. The poles served as 1/16-mile markers, and the curved exterior of the Maddy lab is meant to evoke the curve of a racetrack. Learn more about what Facilities Management did to preserve this history.
