Meadowlands washed out


The Meadowlands canceled it fourth consecutive card on Friday when it announced that the track had called off its Saturday-night program.

Heavy rain for more than a week caused widespread flooding throughout New Jersey and shut down Meadowlands racing because of an uneven racing surface.

The Meadowlands last ran a complete program on Oct. 7. The track managed only one race on Oct. 8, got in three on Tuesday afternoon, and canceled the Wednesday through Saturday programs.

Forecasts called for an end to the rain over the weekend. The track will try to resume on Tuesday at 1:10 p.m. As of Friday, no information was available on possible makeup dates. The meet runs through Nov. 12.
