Grants Pass Downs – Press Statement – March 26, 2020:
“Grants Pass Downs has made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming spring race meet, which was scheduled to begin on May 10, due to health and safety concerns surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, the backside will not open for training in April.
Although this was a difficult decision to make, we are certain it is the right one. Our management team saw no possible avenue to continue with our planned schedule in a way that meets aligns with our mission and meets our commitment to the health and safety of our staff, our athletes, the horsemen and women, racing fans and the community of Grants Pass.
This is an unprecedented crisis, but the love and support for one another we have seen throughout our racing family and the Grants Pass community reminds us that we are all in this together, and we will come through these difficult times stronger.”
-Randy Evers, President, Grants Pass Downs
