Date Posted: 09/15/20

The Delaware County Fair is pleased to announce that participating horse owners will be permitted to attend the Grand Circuit races (September 20-24, 2020), including the 75th edition of the Little Brown Jug, presented by the Ohio Harness Horseman’s Association.  
Horseman and owners must show their valid Ohio State Racing Commission license at the US Route 23 Gate to gain admission to the grounds. Admission will only be allowed on the day their horse races. Delaware County Fair personnel will verify participation at the entry gate and may deny entry.  
“We are happy to make this announcement. We have been working with the OHHA and local health officials to make sure we could safely meet these objectives,” noted Tom Wright, president of the Delaware County Agricultural Society board. “We also want to thank everyone for their patience as we work though this very unique situation.”    
Owner will not be permitted in the race paddock or in the barn area. Portions of the grandstand will be available for the owners to use, however food and drink vendors will not be available. Owners will be allowed to bring their own refreshments.  
Owners will be permitted one non-licensed guest.   
The owners and their guest will be required to wear a suitable mask or face covering while walking around the grounds and grandstand. As much as possible, social distancing (6’ or more) must be observed.  
Fans wishing to watch and wager on the racing action are encouraged to visit for a list of simulcast and off-track betting locations. Free past performance pages will be available on our website.   
The OHHA will be broadcasting all five days of racing action on its Facebook page.
