Derby To Run Without Spectators


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Derby will run without fans for the first time. The historic track cited rises in COVID-19 cases in the Louisville area. It will mark the second Triple Crown race this year without fans, following the Belmont Stakes in June. This year’s Derby and Kentucky Oaks for fillies were postponed from May to September because of the coronavirus pandemic. Churchill Downs had earlier planned to limit attendance to 23,000.
