Beulah cancels Wednesday card


GROVE CITY, Ohio – Beulah Park canceled live racing Wednesday due to an impending winter storm expected to dump up to six inches of snow on the Columbus area Wednesday afternoon.

“We just felt it was best for all involved,” said Joe Deluca, steward and track superintendent. "We have a lot of trainers ship in and that would make it really difficult for them."

Racing is scheduled to resume on Friday with the first post at 1:15 p.m.

A winter storm came through on Sunday, causing freezing of the track. When temperatures warmed on Monday, racing was canceled after the first race because the jockeys felt the track was uneven. After track personnel spent hours working on the surface, racing was able to resume on Tuesday.
