Michael Mann's Luck 2011 filming schedule

Santa Anita horse racing track, the star location of the forthcoming Michael Mann produced TV show, has needed its synthetic track to be replaced by a traditional dirt track disrupting a little the tight filming schedules. Here is an article from last October for anyone interested.

Mike Willman of Trackside Review reported from Santa Anita Park the following shoot schedule for 2011 and provides information on who is directing. Episode three is said to be directed by Phillip Noyce (who recently shot "Salt").

ARCADIA, Calif. — Production on the pilot and first two episodes of  Home Box Office’s (HBO) highly anticipated series, “Luck,” has been nearly completed and production and shooting for episode Three will resume at Santa Anita on Jan. 10.
“Luck,” which stars several “A List” actors, including Dustin Hoffman, is the brainchild of world renowned writer/producer David Milch, and is being shot in large-part at Santa Anita.
