Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company, Inc. has cancelled the 2020 OBS Day of Racing, scheduled to be held on November 24, 2020.
The restrictions and protocols implemented by racetracks due to the Covid-19 situation have created limited availability of racing personnel which prevents OBS from conducting these races in a safe responsible manner. Racetracks in Florida and throughout the country have policies in place which do not allow jockeys to move freely between tracks. Testing and quarantine requirements for jockeys that travel away from their home racetrack will inhibit their participation at OBS.
“With Gulfstream Park preparing for its championship meet and Tampa Bay Downs starting Thanksgiving weekend, it is important for racing in Florida to continue uninterrupted”, stated OBS President Tom Ventura. “OBS will evaluate potential future dates for racing that complements the racing calendar. “
