Meydan: It feels like San Bernardino - in August


With just less than two hours to post, the temperature at Meydan racecourse is 95 degrees, and it feels like it.

There is a warm wind, blowing, too. It's a dry heat, with 10 percent humidity. The temperature will drop to some extent in coming hours, as the sun sets around the third of the eight races, but it will still be a warm night.

There are no scratches in the Thoroughbred races, with two hours to post.
