Both tracks will again be racing with no spectators, and thus with no live betting.
They are doing that as part of their efforts to comply with federal, state and local government
guidances on limiting the size of public, gatherings amid the coronavirus (COVID-19)pandemic.
Most of the other racetracks and Off Track Betting locations that are sources of simulcast betting on Gulfstream and Tampa Bay are closed.
Fans can still watch and wager on Gulfstream and Tampa Bay races by Internet and phone with Advance Deposit Wagering (ADW) accounts.
