2020 Arabian Racing

We are hoping to be racing this summer at Grants Pass Downs, Oregon. We will bring you updated news as it happens

2020 Arabian Racing Dates – Stay and race in California!

Updatd 30 May 2020

The tentative dates for California Arabian Racing have been confirmed by the California Authority of Racing Fairs (CARF) and must be fully approved by the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB). The meeting date for this approval has been announced for the upcoming CHRB TeleConference on 11 June. The audio portion only of the California Horse Racing Board regular meeting will be available online through a link at the CHRB website (www.chrb.ca.gov) under “Webcasts.” To participate in the teleconference, dial 888-392-4564 and enter 6896291# when prompted.

The following is a schedule of race dates to be discussed and further approved.

* Racing will open at the Alameda Fair Grounds at Pleasanton on 19 June and run though 12 July.
The barns and track will be open by early June.
* If approved, the dates for Cal Expo at Sacramento racing will be held at Pleasanton from 17 July – 3 August.
* The race dates for Santa Rosa and Ferndale will be held at Golden Gate Fields (GGF) from 5 August – 1 September.
* Other GGF dates are being considered until 4 October, and Fresno hopes to run at Fresno from 7 -20 October.

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.

We Are Dedicated To Arabian Racing in California

IMPORTANT UPDATE
 - THE 2020 RACING INCENTIVE SUPPLEMENT

To all ARAC members:

Beginning in 2017, a Supplement Racing Fund was created to be used to offset the expense of the mandatory Insurance required to race in California. From this Supplement Fund, the 5th, 6th and 7th placing horses will receive $250.00 in ARAC races during the 2020 racing season.

The $10,000 fund is finite and will be used until the Fund is totally depleted. We hope to add more money to this Supplement Fund during the summer through donations and sponsors to support these horses throughout the entire 2020 racing season. It is our hope that by offsetting the expenses of racing in California, Arabian owners will appreciate the opportunity of racing without the financial burdens of past years.

Several owners, racing related businesses and other Arabian Racing enthusiasts have offered financial contributions to the Supplement Fund to guarantee the continued health of racing in California. Please consider joining them and help see California Arabian Racing grow.
