Aqueduct cancels Saturday and Sunday cards


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Aqueduct canceled its live racing cards for Saturday and Sunday due to a winter storm that dumped a dangerous mixture of ice, snow, and rain on the Metropolitan area. Aqueduct also canceled Friday's card due to the storm.

Aqueduct remained open for simulcasting on Saturday and was to remain open for simulcasting on Sunday as well.

The Grade 3, $100,000 Cicada Stakes scheduled for Saturday will be run next Saturday. It will be open to all original nominees and re-drawn on Thursday.

Live racing is scheduled to resume on Wednesday with a 1 p.m. post.
