BFR Guidelines during the COVID-19 Bridge Phase:

Blackhawk Farms is operating with guidelines in place to lessen the potential transmission of COVID-19 to our participants and staff. A copy of the current guidelines can be downloaded here. Please review these guidelines before you plan your trip to the track.


Blackhawk Farms is currently operating in accordance with Governor Pritzker’s executive order 2021-10. The state of Illinois has issued a 5 phase plan for reopening, and the state is divided into 4 regions. Blackhawk Farms is located in the North Central region and is in phase 4 of the reopening plan.
