Arapahoe Park opens to horse racing, but without spectators

COVID-19 brought a halt to sporting events, including horse racing. Bruce Seymore is the general manager of Arapahoe Park, which celebrated its first-ever opening day with empty grandstands on Monday. “It’s surreal. Normally we would have between 3,000 and 5,000 people,” Seymore said. The only way to enjoy the races at Arapahoe Park this June is on a television screen. If you want to place a bet, you have to do it online, although only one of the major horse racing betting sites is currently accepting wagers from Coloradans even though online gambling is now legal in the state.
