Normally on the first Saturday of May, now scheduled to be the first Saturday in September, the running of the 146th Kentucky Derby will now host fans, Churchill Downs announced this morning.

In accordance with Gov. Andy Beshear, Churchill Downs has created a plan to allow a limited amount of fans with strict guidelines for this year’s derby. The plan also applies to the Kentucky Oaks race, as they attempt to host fans while fending off further outbreak of the Coronavirus.

The exact amount of fans and how to purchase seats is yet to be released, but a limited amount of general admission tickets will be offered exclusively to the infield. All that are going will be asked to wear a mask while at the event unless seated at reserved seats along with staying socially distanced and actively using hand washing stations.

The link in this tweet from the Churchill Downs Public Relations Department includes further details into the guidelines:

The situation is still fluid considering the rising in cases of Covid-19 across the country, but the Kentucky Derby as of now will at least include a little more of an amount of normalcy than expected a few months ago.
