#US RACING: Golden Gate Fields to open after COVID-19 outbreak

GOLDEN GATE FIELDS

ALBANY, Calif. (AP) — Golden Gate Fields will resume live racing on January 15 after being closed for over a month due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Track owner 1/ST Racing said on Friday last that after extensive testing, the COVID-19 outbreak at the San Francisco Bay area track has decreased to levels that allow for live racing.

Owners won’t be allowed to attend training or racing sessions as the winter meet begins, the track said.

Initially, the track was closed for a week in November to address the issue and then the closure was extended through December.

Golden Gate Fields’ stable area houses 1,300 horses.
