Calder cancels Saturday nightcap


MIAMI - The twelfth and final race on Saturday's program at Calder was canceled due to darkness and adverse weather conditions in the area.

A severe lightning and rainstorm forced a 20 minute delay in the post time for the 10th race. The weather finally abated enough to run both the 10th and 11th races but as a result of the delay and the wet track conditions management felt it was in the best interests of the riders and horses safety to cancel the nightcap.

Racing was expected to resume as scheduled on Sunday.
