The Louisiana Racing Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved Delta Downs' request to amend its Quarter Horse race dates for 2020.

As a result, Delta Downs will open its Quarter Horse meet on June 10. The 36-date season will run through August 22. Delta was originally scheduled to start its Quarter Horse meet on April 17, but the start was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Delta Downs will offer a minimum of nine races daily Wednesday through Saturday. First post time for Wednesday and Thursday racing will be 5:15 p.m. (CDT), while first post time for Friday and Saturday racing is set for 6:15.

Earlier this week, Delta Downs released an amended Quarter Horse stakes schedule.
