KY Derby will Run with Limitations on Spectators
By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE - Churchill Downs says the rescheduled Kentucky Derby and Oaks will run this fall with spectators under strict guidelines to limit crowd density for the races that annually attract more than 150,000.

Kevin Flanery, president of the racetrack, said that he anticipates a crowd of about 60,000 will be allowed for the races.

The 146th runnings of the Oaks for fillies and the Derby were postponed from May 1-2 to Sept. 4-5 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans will be encouraged to wear masks at all times unless seated and to practice social distancing.

Access will be limited throughout the track.
