Philadelphia Park canceled its live racing program Monday after two races because the jockeys felt the frozen track was unsafe. In the first race, jockey Jose Flores fell when his mount broke down approaching the top of the stretch, and the rider was taken to a hospital to be evaluated for a possible concussion and rib injury. . . . Finger Lakes will boost overnight purses by 35 percent for its 160-day season, which begins on April 16. The increase will be funded by projected revenue from the track's video lottery terminal operation, scheduled to open next month.
