Kentucky Downs Postpones Sunday Card to Tuesday


Kentucky Downs | Coady

As a result of afternoon-long rains that pelted the track and with more inclement weather forecast for Sunday, officials at Kentucky Downs announced late Saturday afternoon that the 11-race program originally scheduled for Sunday would be postponed and run in its entirety on Tuesday.

“With the steady rain that we had from the fifth race on and the projected forecast for rain overnight and tomorrow, we felt it the prudent thing to do safety-wise for both horses and riders,” said Ted Nicholson, Kentucky Downs' senior vice president and general manager. “With the forecast being much more favorable for Tuesday and Wednesday, it was the right thing to do.”

Sunday's card was to include the $500,000 TVG S., the $400,000 Untapable S. and the $400,000 Music City S. The Kentucky Downs meeting concludes Wednesday with a program that features the GIII Nevada State Bank Franklin-Simpson S. for 3-year-olds at 6 1/2 furlongs.
