Ruidoso Downs is finally set to resume racing May 22 following COVID-19 precautionary measures.  Horses will be let back in the barn May 1.  Betting will also be available for these races online.

From TurfNSport: "Until further notice, only NMRC licensed training staff, jockeys and NMRC track officials will be allowed on the premises. Ruidoso Downs has developed an operational protocol for barn area occupants and will enforce those efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by requiring daily temperature and health screenings. Everyone will also be required to wear a face covering."

Then there is Santa Anita.

Santa Anita is continuing discussions with the LA County Health Department and LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger’s office as they undertake a thorough and thoughtful review of the proposal submitted to resume live racing as soon as possible at Santa Anita. The comprehensive written proposal was submitted last Thursday (April 16), following a meeting with Supervisor Barger earlier that day.

While Santa Anita is first and foremost in our minds, we are one of literally hundreds of businesses asking for attention during this Pandemic. The process, as thorough as it is, is time-consuming. However, we anticipate receiving an answer shortly.
To manage expectations, should we be able to resume live racing under the new protocols submitted, we anticipate there will be a delay of 7-10 days between acceptance of the plan and implementation of the protocols to return to live racing.
