Golden Gate shuts down racing despite no positive COVID cases, just like SA, per TVG.

Not in the article, one of my horse racing groups on FB posted screen shots from people passing phone numbers out for anti racing people to complain that racing was not essential and should be shut down. 
A/R groups are out of control and people calling police over their neighbors and or businesses they think shouldn’t be open is just crazy!! 
In Wisconsin a few seniors were out in the park social distancing but playing pickle ball and several calls went into the police complaining.

Because they are organized and have huge numbers of crazies on their side willing to help shut down Racing. If we are not careful racing will be gone forever.

Keeneland is doing an exceptional job with sanitizing the facilities, monitoring backstretch people, donating, and even seeding the turf course earlier to be ready for the BC this fall.
