DEL MAR (CBS 8) - Turf racing resumed at the Del Mar racetrack Saturday. 

The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club reopened the grass track following a week-long closure aimed at preventing horse injuries and deaths.

The course was initially closed from July 27 to July 30 following seven horse deaths -- four of which happened after falls on the turf.

But its reopening on July 30 led to another serious horse injury the next day, prompting track officials to close it again and spend the week adjusting it.
