 Clearly the right decision: i  think they thought that by September the virus would be under control: instead, it is worse now than it was back when they cancelled the Derby.

They should have run it in May.

 They should have but i think they thought things would be better in September (wishful thinking we all hoped for)-- they didn't want to lose all those paying customers- but they lost them anyway

Yep, in hindsight. But CDI wasn’t on top of things to begin with and wouldn’t have had protocols in place by May anyway?

The new Derby gate will be used Sept 1 so horses can school in it and will run a race at  11/4 miles so gate crew and starter can get themselves set before the Derby.
