Originally the 133-day live meet had been scheduled to run from October 17-May 1, 2021. The new schedule will run from Nov. 27-May 1, for 110 live race days.
“We are hoping that by opening later the Coronavirus situation will settle down in Arizona,” said track general manager Vincent Francia. “Regardless we will have health protocols in place when the meet opens.”
Francia added, “We are working with AZHBPA president Bob Hutton as to a date when the horses can begin to arrive in the stable area.”
