The Ohio State Racing Commission announced Wednesday that horse racing at all Ohio racetracks is officially cancelled through April 6, 2020. The Commission will be in contact with the permit holders and the horsemen to discuss further cancellations, if needed.

Racetrack backsides are to remain open.

The racetrack is to be maintained and made available for training. Horsemen and racetrack employees are strongly encouraged to practice safe social distancing procedures. The Commission will continue to keep everyone informed and will post updates when pertinent information becomes available.

The Commission thanks everyone for their patience during this unprecedented and very fluid situation.
