Churchill Downs announced the closure of Turfway Park Wednesday due to the coronavirus pandemic, citing the “Healthy at Home” Executive Order 2020-257 issued by Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear. With the Turfway racing season scheduled to run through Saturday, March 28, the remainder of the meet has been cancelled.
