According to an announcement by the Standardbred Owners Association of New York, there will not be an upcoming shutdown of racing at Yonkers Raceway, which had previously stated that racing would be taking a break after Saturday, September 12.

Standardbred Owners Association of New York President Joe Faraldo has announced that, as a result of the SOA of NY covering purses for a number of weeks and an agreement reached with MGM Resorts Yonkers, there will not be a shutdown of racing at the track.

Faraldo has stated that racing at Yonkers will continue next week on the same four-day schedule and that, thereafter, Yonkers racing will return to a five-day-per-week schedule through December 22.

Faraldo also went on to announce that purses will remain at current levels until a build up in the purse account is seen.

It had been announced in mid-August that several planned stakes events would be cancelled, including the 2020 editions of the Yonkers Trot and Messenger Stakes.
