Fonner cancels after race 3


GRAND ISLAND, Neb. - The Saturday card at Fonner Park was canceled following the third race because the riders deemed the track unsafe. The track had been wet for over a week, and with frost coming out of the ground, the surface was determined to be unsafe to ride.

The $25,000 Orphan Kist Stakes for Nebraska-bred fillies and mares will be rescheduled for next Saturday when an 11-race card will be offered. Also on tap that day is the $10,000 Bachman Stakes for 3-year-olds and the $25,000 Budweiser-Tondi Stakes for older horses.
