Marquis Downs cancels Saturday card due to inclement weather


Marquis Downs had its fourth weather-related cancelation of 2013 when Saturday night's card was called off.

Originally scheduled for 26 days, with racing Fridays and Saturdays, the Marquis Downs meeting was to begin June 14 but did not get under way until June 22. Four consecutive cards were then run prior to Saturday's cancelation.

Marquis had budgeted for 192 races to be run this year. Two of the canceled cards were rescheduled for Sept. 21-22, one week after the meet's originally scheduled ending.
