For the second day in a row, Golden Gate Fields in Northern California cancelled live racing Saturday due to smoke in the area. Recent wildfires in California and Oregon have been well documented in the news, and the Bay Area, where Golden Gate Fields is located, has been one of the hardest hit locales. Air quality has been deemed unsafe for both horses and humans.

After cancelling both Sept. 11 and Sept. 12 due to the conditions, Golden Gate's next day of live racing is scheduled to be Sunday.
