Winter Storm Elliott is expected to bring gusty winds, arctic cold and threats of flash freezing to the Mid-Atlantic over the weekend. To prepare, the Maryland Jockey Club has postponed its Dec. 26 Christmastide Stakes Day program.

“Due to the weather conditions expected throughout the weekend, we decided to cancel our Monday program early and accommodate our fans as well as the horsemen and horsewomen who will be participating in this exceptional day of racing,” said Mike Rogers, Acting President of the Maryland Jockey Club.

The entire 11-race slate will shift to Friday, Dec. 30 with a post time of 11:25 a.m. Live racing is scheduled to resume Thursday, Dec. 29 with the 48-day fall meet finale set for Saturday, Dec. 31.

Featuring six $100,000 stakes, the Christmastide program includes, the Heft S. for 2-year-olds and Gin Talking S. for 2-year-old fillies at seven panels, each; 6 1/2-furlong Willa On the Move S. and 1 1/8 Carousel S. for older fillies and mares; and six furlong Dave's Friend S. and Robert T. Manfuso S. going 1 1/16 for 3-year-olds and up.
