Some tracks cancel as winter storm reaches East Coast


Due to a winter storm that was expected to bring a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to the East Coast, Wednesday racing at Laurel Park in Maryland, Parx Racing in Pennsylvania, and Charles Town in West Virginia has been canceled.

Officials at Aqueduct plan to race on Wednesday.

Snow began to fall Wednesday morning and was expected to continue until Thursday morning. Accumulations of 6 to 10 inches were expected for many areas.
