A 20-foot long monument within the garden paddock at Betfair Hollywood Park that marks the burial place of the great Native Diver will be moved, along with his remains, to Del Mar in the next few weeks. Joe Harper, longtime president and chief executive officer of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, confirmed Dec. 18 in an interview on TVG that the ceramic tile monument would be relocated soon after the closure of Hollywood Park. The Inglewood oval, which has operated for 75 years, will be completing its final weekend of racing Dec. 20-22.
