The closure will mean four lost days of racing, as Charles Town is on a four-day-a-week schedule. The final day of racing prior to the closure will be April 17, and racing will resume the following Wednesday, April 28.
Charles Town has lost four days of racing thus far in 2021. Three of those came because of the weather, and the track was also forced to abandon its April 3 card because of lack of entries.
Charles Town will remain open for simulcasting during the closure.
