In light of the province recently extending the “lockdown” an additional two weeks and the current trends and numbers that we are seeing in the province, we have decided to follow the extension and push out opening training day to hopefully Wednesday May 12, 2021. This was to be opening day of racing, so we will be reviewing the race day schedule and will have further news about that at a later date once we get a better understanding of the environment and where the province is at and the colour code that the Durham region will be in and how much training we can get in, etc. All unclear at this time.
For the time being the first day of scheduled training will be for breezing only with a potential for gate work on that day but we will confirm that at a later date and time. We will continue to monitor the environment and finalize a date for the commencement of racing. We will follow the original training day schedule less the Thursdays and sub in the Wednesday race days for training day and continue with the Sunday May 16, Monday May 24 and Sunday May 30 days. If there is a chance of starting racing by June 2nd or earlier, we will consider adding more training days prior to that potential opening race day. Of course this once again is all subject to change in this very fluid environment that we are in.
Thanks for your continued patience.
