Full simulcast operations, including concessions, will be available daily at 10 a.m. Bar & Book will be closed until further notice with this move of simulcast operations to the Grandstand.

Face coverings are required for all guests ages 2 and up at all times, with the only exception being when in the act of eating or drinking. Those who fail to comply will be refused service and will be asked to leave the property.

Grandstand now open every live racing day as well as for simulcast overflow every Saturday.

Admission is free and all reservations have been suspended until further notice.
