Fifth Race Cancelled at Saratoga Due to Power Outage

Saratoga Race Course | Sarah Andrew

A power outage at Saratoga Race Course on Wednesday afternoon before the fifth race delayed the start and eventually forced NYRA to cancel that event.

The loss of power affected other properties near the course after a tree apparently fell on Union Avenue. Power was lost throughout Saratoga Race Course at 3:19 p.m. ET and substantially restored at 4:01 p.m. with various critical systems brought back online for the sixth race to go at 4:31 p.m.

The card resumed with adjusted post times beginning with race six.
