Aqueduct: Muddy & off the turf

Email

  If you thought there would be turf racing this April Fools' Day, the joke's on you, as overnight rain forced the season's first three scheduled grass races to a muddy and sealed main track.

  There are 21 scratches off the program including 13 in the off-the-turfers, but thankfully none in the five-horse feature, the $60,000 Mr. Nasty overnight stakes (3rd race) at six furlongs.
