The U.S. Department of Agriculture gave its approval today to a foot-and-mouth quarantine facility at Aqueduct. The decision will make it easier for European horses to compete in Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championship prep races at Belmont Park.
When racing resumes at Belmont Park on Wednesday after five days of cancellations due to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the stakes schedule will continue as published, according to the New York Racing Association. However, because of conflicts with other stakes races during the fall meet, four of the five graded stakes cancelled last weekend--the Ruffian, Belmont Breeders' Cup, Matron and Futurity--will not be rescheduled.
Breeders' Cup is re-evaluating the marketing position of its World Thoroughbred Championships in light of the recent terrorist attack on New York City, an official said Tuesday. The Oct. 27 event at Belmont Park will be dedicated to the people impacted by the attack on the World Trade Center.
The Maryland Jockey Club, Maryland Horse Breeders' Association, and Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association will team up to support relief efforts at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Despite uncertainty surrounding the viability of a live race meet, Hialeah Park will keep its backstretch and racing surface open for training from November through April 2002.
