Aqueduct cancels Thursday card


Today's card at Aqueduct Racetrack was cancelled because of the threat of a major winter storm whose arrival in the Metropolitan New York area was expected by late morning. Forecasts call for from four to six inches of snow coupled with a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain.

As for Thursday's card, the seventh, eighth and ninth races will be brought back as extra races for Saturday; the second and fourth will be brought back as extras for Sunday.

Racing will resume on Friday with first-race post at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
