Belterra Adjusting Post Times Due to Heat


Belterra Park | Coady

With a forecast for extreme temperatures and heat indexes, post time at Belterra Park for Tuesday and Wednesday, June 21 and 22, will be pushed forward by one hour, with first post scheduled for 11:35 a.m. on both days.

Similarly hot conditions forced the cancellation of racing at Belterra June 14 through June 16, while officials at Churchill Downs about 90 minutes southwest of Cincinnati decided to call off live racing June 15 and 16. The live card at Churchill Wednesday, June 22, will begin at 10:30 a.m. in order to avoid the hottest part of the day, where temperatures could touch triple digits. Horseshoe Indianapolis also lost three cards to the heat wave.
