Jockey Club briefly closed
February 25, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

San Mateo County health inspectors briefly closed the Jockey Club satellite wagering room in San Mateo more than a week ago but operators chalk it up to equipment failure and a communication hiccup after taking over the site’s food and beverage service.

The Health System closed the club at 2495 S. Delaware St. Feb. 13 after an inspector found the hot water temperature below the required level. Chris Carpenter, general manager of the San Mateo County Event Center, which operates the club, said a breaker blew on the boiler which caused the temperature drop but that the system was fixed quickly. The club was closed for the last hour of business due to the temperature but reopened on time the next day, Carpenter said.

The club was also knocked for not operating with a valid health permit which Carpenter and Ronny Tompot, general manager of food and beverage, said was a miscommunication. The Event Center brought food and beverage in-house in December and both men said they erroneously thought the permits from previous provider Ovation which are good through April would automatically transfer when it changed hands. They did not, but the situation was rectified.

Health System spokeswoman Robyn Thaw confirmed the Jockey Club corrected the issues promptly.

The Jockey Club opened in 2008 after the closure of the privately owned Bay Meadows race track. The facility has been a financial boom for the Event Center which operates the club.
