Of more than 60 racetracks registered by the equibase.com website, only three are active this Wednesday, thus noting how disturbed the United States' horse racing is due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Indeed, the Fonner Park ovals in New England; Tampa Bay Downs in Florida and Will Rogers Downs in Oklahoma will have races. This Thursday they will see equestrian action, the Gulfstream Park racetracks in Florida; Oaklawn Park in Arkansas and Remington Park in Oklahoma.
Friday there will be competitions in Gulfstream Park, Florida; Los Alamitos, California; Oaklawn Park, Arkansas, Remington Park, Oklahoma and Tampa Bay, Florida.
Several equestrian circuits are close to resuming the races; a good number will not open until further notice, as is the case of those located in the state of New York, a place quite affected by the pandemic and others that are open only for tracheos of the specimens, such as the Case of Santa Anita Park, in California, although it is noteworthy that its executives are making arrangements with the health authorities of the state of California to give the green light to the horse show.
It is noteworthy that the few racetracks that are fully active (rattles and races) work without the presence of the public.
