Oaklawn Park: Power outage won't affect Sunday racing


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – A transformer blew at Oaklawn Park at 3 a.m. Sunday, but power has been restored, and the track will race as scheduled at 1 p.m. Central, said Oaklawn spokeswoman Jennifer Hoyt.                                         

Hoyt said the power outage affected Teleview and the horsemen's bookkeeper's offices. She said if power hadn’t been restored by 11 a.m., the races would have been canceled.                                              

Oaklawn's post is a half-hour earlier Sunday because of the Super Bowl.
