Summary: Residing only 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the San Luis Rey Downs is located in a highly corrosive environment, and once the horses take residence, the corrosive elements quickly intensify. Each stall is equipped with its own water source for daily use, a salt block hangs from the stalls which runs and drips onto the stall frames, and the most corrosive element in the stalls is the urine from the horses. The superior corrosion protection of a hot-dip galvanized coating ensures that future generations of horse racing enthusiasts can enjoy these same stalls for decades to come, with little to no maintenance.
