Mountaineer Cancels West Virginia Derby Day Program

On Tuesday, Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort in New Cumberland, WV announced the cancellation of its entire West Virginia Derby day program in 2020. Scheduled for Aug. 1, the West Virginia Derby is the track’s premier race of the season.

COVID-19 policy changes in West Virginia and concerns about shipping horses and people in from multiple locations prompted the decision.

Live racing at Mountaineer, already being carried out without fans present, will continue on a Sunday through Wednesday schedule with a 7:00 p.m. post time.
