Winners will remain closed indefinitely, meaning there will be no simulcasting of horse races or betting taking place.
An email from the Meadowlands Raceway issued yesterday afternoon stated, “The health and safety of our employees, horsemen, patrons and community are our top priority.”
Casino gambling in Atlantic City has also shut down due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.
