OZONE PARK, N.Y. – The cancellation of the weekend cards at Aqueduct due to severe winter weather forced two stakes races to be rescheduled.

The Ladies Handicap, part of last Saturday’s card, was redrawn Sunday and will go as race 3 on Friday’s nine-race card. Last Sunday’s Ruthless Stakes for 3-year-old fillies was to be redrawn Wednesday and will be run Saturday along with the Jazil Stakes.

The same five fillies and mares entered for last Saturday’s running of the Ladies were entered back for Friday, though all five drew different post positions, and two have different riders. Highway Star, the probable favorite, went from the rail to post 5. Wonder Gal, the likely second choice, went from post 4 to the rail. Wonder Gal will be ridden by Kendrick Carmouche, replacing Jose Ortiz, who will be at Oaklawn on Friday.

Jet Majesty, who had Aaron Gryder named at entry time but was going to be ridden by Eric Cancel on Saturday, now will be ridden Irad Ortiz Jr. Ortiz was on suspension last week and is eligible to return Friday.
