Rain, Wind Prompt Monmouth Opening Day Cancellation


Monmouth Park | Sarah Andrew

Due to heavy rain and high winds that have been affecting the Jersey Shore region all day Saturday, officials at Monmouth Park were forced to cancel the track's season-opening program that was scheduled to get underway at 2 p.m. ET.

The track was to remain open for full-card simulcasting, including Saturday's Kentucky Derby card from Churchill Downs.

Racing is scheduled to resume on Mother's Day Sunday, May 8, with nine live races beginning at 12:15 p.m. ET. The main event is the $100,000 Serena's Song S. for older fillies and mares going 8 1/2 furlongs on the main track.
