With a forecast calling for significant rainfall, officials at Santa Anita Park have canceled Monday's Presidents' Day program at the track. The nine-race program on Sunday will proceed as scheduled, with a first post at 12:30 p.m. PT.

The track will remain open Monday for simulcasting in the Grandstand Paddock Room beginning at 10 a.m., with free parking and admission.

Races carded for Monday, including the $100,000 Tiznow S., will be offered as extras on the overnights for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 23-25.

Similarly rainy conditions forced the cancellation of racing Feb. 4 and training was suspended through Feb. 8 due to track conditions. The track was reopened to regular training Feb. 9, but the live racing program was canceled that day to give local horsepeople additional time to prepare their horses. A reported 10 inches of rain fell between Feb. 4 and Feb. 7.
