Penn National cancels Thursday program


Winter-related track conditions caused Penn National Race Course to cancel Thursday night’s live racing program.

The track will remain open for simulcasting and will attempt to resume live racing Friday with first post time 6 p.m. Eastern.

Penn National has only been able to host one live racing card so far this month. After running on Feb.  1, the four live programs for the weeks of Feb.  5-8 and Feb. 12-15 were canceled due to a series of snow storms and below-freezing conditions.
