Fair Grounds cancels Sunday races due to heavy rain


Fair Grounds canceled the last six races of its Sunday card because of heavy rain.

Race 3 was delayed for almost a half-hour, eventually being run at about 2:30 p.m. Central, but with more rain headed to the New Orleans area and the Fair Grounds track already a sea of slop, the decision was made to scrap races 4 through 9.

A decision hasn’t been made on whether to make up the canceled races on a future card.

This is a lesson/ the director of racing and track man at Mountaineer park should read. The fact the animals and jockeys and gate crew come first,but this place still keeps her in charge. The mgr.corp wake up!
