Aqueduct Cancels Saturday Card



The New York Racing Association has canceled Saturday's live racing program at Aqueduct due to dangerously low wind chill values set to impact the New York City metropolitan area. The training track at Belmont will also be closed Saturday, but the jogging barns will remain open.

The current National Weather Service forecast, which aligns with NYRA's independent weather services, is calling for extremely cold temperatures and sustained winds creating wind chill values as low as -5. As a result, NYRA has canceled Saturday's card in the interest of the safety of all participants. Aqueduct Racetrack will be open for simulcasting on Saturday.

Racing resumes Sunday with a nine-race card.
