Tuesday, May 19th, 2020

Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack announced May 18 that the Farmington track will open for training June 1. In the coming days the track will apply to the New York Gaming Commission to resume live racing July 13 without the presence of spectators.

“It is anticipated that trainers will use the next six weeks to condition and ready their horses for the live racing season,” read the statement. “In accordance with the state’s order in response to COVID-19, Finger Lakes remains temporarily closed, including for gaming, simulcast wagering, events, and dining.

“Prior to suspending operations in March, we worked to protect public health by following U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on sanitizing protocols and cleaning throughout our venue. Our planning for reopening has been focused on a comprehensive program that features additional ways that we will help keep our guests and employees safe from COVID-19. We will provide more information on that program ahead of reopening as we continue to consult with local and state government officials.”
