Thistledown announced that it has moved its post time to 2:30 p.m. EDT for the three Saturdays that comprise the Triple Crown—May 7, May 21, and June 11.
The 2:30 p.m. post time also will apply to June 4, the day of the Ohio Derby (gr. III).
For the remaining Saturdays in May and June—May 14 and 28 and June 18 and 25—post time will move to 3:15 p.m. This change will then be evaluated to determine whether the later Saturday post will continue through the rest of the meet.
Thistledown’s live meet begins Saturday, April 23. Until the changes take effect, post time on Friday and Saturday will remain at the traditional 1:50 p.m. The 1:50 p.m. post also remains in place throughout the meet for Monday and Wednesday cards, and for Thursday cards when that day is added to the race week in September.
