New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said horse racing tracks will be allowed to open across the state as of June 1 without fans.
“If you can have economic activity without a crowd that’s great," Cuomo said. "There will guidelines for the actual participants, but no crowds, no fans but for the industry itself, for the televised viewers that can still work."
The state will be issuing guidance shortly.
Watkins Glen International racetrack will also be opening, Cuomo said.
