No Live Racing at Aqueduct Till April 5th at Least

Live racing at Aqueduct Racetrack is suspended through at least April 5th because of the coronavirus pandemic in New York.

Last week, NYRA live racing at Aqueduct was suspended following confirmation that a backstretch worker who lived and worked at Belmont tested positive.

585 workers tend to the daily care of the more than 1,300 thoroughbreds stabled on the property.

The Belmont Park backstretch and its facilities remains open to horsemen and operational for training.

Owners will not be permitted access to the backstretch until further notice.
