Aqueduct cancels Friday racing due to high winds


Racing at Aqueduct was canceled Friday due to expected high winds including gusts of up to 60 miles per hour in the afternoon.

Aqueduct and the Belmont Café were open for simulcasting.

High winds also brought last Saturday’s card to a halt after three races. Friday marked the seventh weather-related full-card cancellation of the inner-track meet.

Racing is scheduled to resume Saturday with a 10-race card; first post is 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
