Aqueduct, Charles Town, Penn National cancel Saturday cards


The New York Racing Association canceled its nine-race program at Aqueduct Racetrack on Saturday as a winter storm approached the New York city area Saturday morning. The storm was expected to bring snow and rain to a wide section of the Northeast, according to the National Weather Center. Aqueduct will be open for simulcast wagering on Saturday and is scheduled for live racing on Sunday.

* Charles Town canceled the last five races on its Friday evening card and called off its Saturday night program – the final live program scheduled for 2012.  Live racing is tentatively scheduled to resume on Wednesday.

* Penn National canceled its Saturday night program - the third time this week the central Pennsylvania track has lost a live racing card due to bad weather. Penn National is scheduled to resume live racing on Thursday at 6 p.m. Eastern.
