Oaklawn Park cancels final six races Sunday due to inclement weather


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn Park canceled the balance of its Sunday card following the third race due to expected inclement weather, said track spokeswoman Jennifer Hoyt.

Hoyt said heavy rains and snow were expected to hit the area. She said the decision to call off the final six races of Oaklawn's card was a mutual decision between track management and the riding colony.                                                                                                        

Oaklawn is scheduled to resume racing Thursday.
