Hastings cancels Friday card after races fail to fill


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The card for Friday, Aug. 5, at Hastings was canceled when not enough horses were entered Sunday morning. Officials at Hastings are blaming the cancellation because of a “cold-like” virus that has spread through the backstretch.

Entries for Saturday and Sunday will be taken on Wednesday. No decision has been made about making up the lost day.
