Delaware Cancels Saturday Program, Card To Be Run As Drawn On Monday


Due to a weather forecast that calls for hot temperatures, high humidity and corresponding excessive heat index readings, officials at Delaware Park, acting upon the recommendation of the Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission (DTRC) veterinarians and stewards, canceled Saturday's live racing program. The heat and humidity combined are forecast to reach 105 degrees during the day on Saturday.

Saturday's program will not be redrawn and will be run as carded on Monday, July 8.

Racing is expected to resume Sunday, July 7 with a first post of 12:30 p.m. ET. A 10-race card is scheduled, featuring the GIII Robert G. Dick Memorial Stakes for older fillies and mares at a mile and three furlongs on the turf, and the annual centerpiece of the meeting, the $500,000 GII Delaware Handicap.
