Oaklawn cancels Sunday and Monday cards


Oaklawn Park canceled racing on Sunday and Monday because the racing surface was frozen. Track officials canceled the cards one day after a winter storm forced the cancellation of racing Saturday.

Eric Jackson, Oaklawn's general manager, said the $250,000 Southwest Stakes, scheduled for Monday, will be run Saturday.

Two other stakes, the $50,000 Pippin for fillies and mares and the $50,000 Martha Washington for 3-year-old fillies have also been rescheduled. The Pippin will now be run on Thursday, and the Martha Washington on Friday.

Jackson said there will be 11-race cards Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
