Aqueduct cancels again for Friday


The winter from Siberia continues as New York Racing Association officials have canceled Friday’s eight-race card at Aqueduct, the fourth straight card lost to weather and safety concerns and the 13th full-card lost at the meet. A 14th card was canceled after two races were run.

The forecast for Friday calls for high temperatures in the teens with winds between 20 and 30 miles-per-hour, making for wind chills near zero or in the single digits. Training was also canceled at both Aqueduct and Belmont Park for Friday.

Aqueduct and Belmont will be open for simulcasting.

Racing could continue on Saturday when temperatures are forecast to be in the low 30s with light snow in the afternoon.
