After a record-setting meet in 2019, NYRA has announced the racing calendar for the 2020 racing meet. Racing will be conducted Wednesdays through Sundays with opening day on Thursday, July 16th and closing day on Labor Day, Monday, September 7th.
"The changes we made to the 2019 season received an overwhelmingly positive response from our horsemen, fans and the community. We asked the local and racing communities for their feedback to these changes following the conclusion of the meet. Given their support, and to maintain consistency and stability for our fans and stakeholders, we will conduct a similar racing schedule in 2020," said NYRA CEO & President Dave O'Rourke in a release.
