DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
The Alameda Health Department announced that all personnel working at the track MUST have a negative COVID 19 test to be allowed entry to the barn area. Obviously those trainers and staff coming from out of state should have this done before arrival. Until further notice all races will be held without spectators.
Although each county has different race protocols which may change before and during racing, as of this writing, all approved Fair racing will be held without spectators and only allow access to trainers, jockeys, grooms, and race officials, all of whom will all be required to wear masks. There will be a track photographer that will take Stretch Photos only, no winner’s circle photos at this time.
