Today (Tuesday, March 17) Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego ordered all bars and restaurants in the City to close until April 1 due to the Coronavirus. This, of course, affects all of Turf Paradise’s OTBs as well as the track itself, since the track and over 40 OTBs are located in Phoenix’s jurisdiction. Other cities where OTBs are located have followed suit. Therefore all Turf Paradise OTBs will be closed along with the Clubhouse until further notice.
