Yonkers Raceway cancels Tuesday live cardMarch 10, 2020,
Columbus, OH — Harness Racing Update is reporting that Yonkers Raceway has canceled its live racing program for Tuesday (March 10).
Joe Faraldo, president of the Standardbred Owners Association of New York, has confirmed to HRU that Yonkers SOA field rep John Brennan has died at age 69 due to coronavirus.
Faraldo said Yonkers Raceway has cancelled racing for Tuesday due to an abundance of caution based on concerns others at the track, including the paddock judge, may — stress may — have contracted the virus.
Yonkers Raceway Presiding Judge Eric Marecki confirmed that racing has been cancelled Tuesday and indicated that he hoped that racing would resume Thursday after the sanitizing of the track has taken place.
