Given the disruption in racing at Yonkers Raceway due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some adjustments have been made to upcoming stakes payments and scheduling.

The MGM Springfield Stakes will now have nominations and first payment fee of $250 closing on May 15. The sustaining payment will now be due June 15. It is hoped that the race will be contested with eliminations on July 4 and a final on July 11.

Divisions of the Reynolds for three-year-old colt and filly pacers, originally scheduled for May 2, have been cancelled. The Hambletonian Society will refund all eligible horses that have made payments for the Reynolds.

There were two New York Sire Stakes legs scheduled at Yonkers Raceway in May: a three-year-old filly trot event May 5 and a three-year-old filly pace event May 12. Information on those stakes will be coming directly from the New York Sire Stakes program.

Decisions on placement of stakes that were disrupted in March will be made once more clarity emerges in regard to when racing can return at Yonkers Raceway. Those disrupted stakes were the M Life Rewards Series for colts and fillies, the Blue Chip Matchmaker Series, the Borgata Pacing Series, and the Yonkers/SOA of NY Bonus Trotting Series.
