Heavy rain cuts Hoosier card short


Hoosier Park in Anderson, Ind., canceled racing after two races on Saturday due to heavy rain the previous 24 hours that rendered the track unusable, according to the jockeys. The $100,000 Frances Slocum was scheduled to be run as the seventh race on the card.

“It is a statebred race, so I will have to call the commission in the morning and see when we can reschedule it,” said racing secretary Butch Cook.

The Hoosier Park meet is scheduled to end next Sunday.
