Calder cancels due to Frances; reopening Monday


MIAMI - Calder Race Course cancelled both its racing and simulcasting programs on Sunday because of the lingering effects of Hurricane Frances. The track was also closed for business Friday and Saturday because of the storm.

Calder president Ken Dunn said the track is scheduled to re-open for business on Monday with a 13-race Juvenile Showcase program that includes the $125,000 Affirmed and Susan's Girl divisions of the Florida Stallion Stakes. The Juvenile Showcase had originally been scheduled for Saturday.

Dunn said Calder did not incur any major damage from Hurricane Frances but that maintenance crews were at work Sunday cleaning up debris from the storm.
