Washington Horsemen Asked Not To Crash Second COVID-19 Vaccination Event

The following note was distributed by Emerald Downs president Phil Ziegler late Monday:

The Muckleshoot Tribe had a vaccination event on January 29-31 in their Health & Wellness parking lot. This event included employees of their businesses and their household family members.

It was brought to our attention on Saturday that racing industry people who were not employed by Emerald Downs were going to the event and representing themselves as employees. This misrepresentation was documented on the consent form.

Throughout the weekend we kept hearing from our employees that they saw trainers, horse owners and other industry people at the event who are not employed by the track.

Needless to say, this is not a good reflection upon our industry.

On February 19-21 the Tribe will be holding a second dose event for all those who received their first dose on January 29-31.

This event once again includes industry people who are employed by Emerald Downs (plus household members), had a vender pass or other venders who had authorization to attend.

For essential workers at the track who will be actively working in the stable area when we open in March, we can provide authorization for you to attend the second event.

For authorization, please email your information to philz@emeralddowns.com or if you have any questions please call me at 253-288-7004.
