The Dade Park Grill will be open, and the clubhouse bar will serve drinks, but there will be no bar seating. When horse track betting begins on Wednesday, the tables will be spaced 6 feet apart and only 2 people will be allowed into the elevator at a time.

Horses will be able to move in today, as well, but trainers will need an appointment. Stall Manager J.J. Gloria can set that up for you by calling 270-454-2361.
