Aqueduct cancels Friday, will run Monday


The New York Racing Association canceled Friday's nine-race card at Aqueduct because of a forecast that called for more than four inches of snow. The track was also closed for simulcasting on Friday.

The nine races that were to be run on Friday will now be run on Sunday. Additionally, Aqueduct will be open for live racing on Monday, normally a dark day. Monday's card will consist of the races in the condition book for Sunday. Entries will be taken on Saturday for Monday's card.

Friday's cancellation is Aqueduct's 11th of the winter, but the first since Feb. 6.
