Like an aging claiming horse limping across the finish line, Garden State Park staged its final card Thursday, ending an era in which it went from horse racing showplace to neglected also-ran. The 58-year-old track, which hosted the likes of Citation and Secretariat, will be razed by developers who plan to build upscale shops, offices and homes on the 225-acre site. No formal commemoration was held for the track's final live program, a nine-race card.
