Aqueduct, Laurel cancel Saturday cards

Email

Aqueduct canceled its nine-race card Saturday due to heavy fog, and Laurel Park canceled its nine-race card due to problems with its track caused by changing weather. There were no stakes races on either card.

Racing at Aqueduct was scheduled to resume with Sunday's nine-race card beginning at 12:25 p.m. Eastern. The featured race is the $100,000 Ruthless Stakes, a six-furlong test for 3-year-old fillies.

Laurel and Pimlico will be open for simulcasting Saturday. Live racing at Laurel is scheduled to resume Wednesday at 12:35 p.m. Eastern.

“With the temperature going from the single digits early in the week to nearly 60 today, the track has been freezing, thawing, and freezing again,” said Maryland Jockey Club director of racing Georganne Hale in a release Saturday. “The combination of the freezing and the moisture are the contributing factors. We couldn’t even get a piece of equipment out on the track. They were just sinking.”

I don't blame the guy for being upset, come on if it was so bad then they shouldn't have ran the first race to begin with. Horse Racing just doesn't know how to make the patrons happy. Marty stop calling people morons, have some class and let everyone have their own opinion.

How long til the degenerates comes out of the woodwork again because NYRA cancelled the race due to zero visibility. Like the moron below asking for a payout on a pick 5 when there was only Race 1 was ran.

"only Race 1 was ran." hopefully your handicapping skills are better than your grammar.

And because only race 1 was run is why they gave a REFUND.

ABSOLUTE BS that there is no pick 5 payout at AQU. I keyed the 10/1 winner of the first and my payout is a kick to the balls....good old NYRA/TOYS я US
