LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - People wanting to place bets on the Kentucky Derby can make a wager in a drive-thru at Keeneland, the Lexington track announced.

The Kentucky Derby and the Kentucky Oaks were postponed to Sept. 4 and 5 this year at Churchill Downs in Louisville due to the coronavirus pandemic. The races will be run without fans.

Keeneland said drive-thru betting will be offered on all the races from Churchill Downs for those two days. The drive-thru will be behind the Keeneland Entertainment Center and will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Patrons will complete a health screening and temperature check at Gate 1.

Keeneland said it would not offer any additional Oaks or Derby events this year.
