Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Moved to Next Saturday

Aqueduct | Sarah Andrew

Following New York State Gaming Commission (NYSGC) approval, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has moved the GI Joe Hirsch Turf Classic from Sunday to next Saturday, Oct. 7, at Aqueduct Racetrack.

Friday's 11-race Aqueduct card was cancelled due to a powerful coastal storm causing widespread flooding and hazardous conditions throughout New York City and Long Island. In addition to Friday's cancellation, NYRA moved Saturday's 11-race card to Sunday and pushed Sunday's 10-race program to Wednesday.

The Joe Hirsch Turf Classic will be re-drawn with entries to be taken on Wednesday, joining a stacked stakes card led by two Grade I “Win and You're In” qualifiers at one-mile for juveniles in the Champagne [GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile] and Frizette [GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies].
