SARATOGA SPRINGS — The New York Racing Association today announced that the opening of the Oklahoma Training Track and stabling area at Saratoga Race Course will be delayed due to the continuing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

The Oklahoma facility was originally set to open April 15, when training traditionally gets underway in advance of the Saratoga meet.

NYRA is working with the New York State Gaming Commission and public health agencies to determine an appropriate date to safely open the Oklahoma for training and stabling. 

The delay does not impact the start of the Saratoga racing season which is scheduled to begin Thursday, July 16.
