Due to extremely cold weather predicted for the New York City metropolitan area Friday, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has cancelled the Jan. 21 card at Aqueduct Racetrack. Wind chill values are expected near zero, prompting NYRA officials to cancel Friday's card in the interest of safety for horses and humans.

While Friday's eight-race card is cancelled, Aqueduct will remain open for simulcasting.

Live racing at Aqueduct is expected to resume Saturday, Jan. 22. First post for the nine-race program is 12:20 p.m.
