Thistledown cancels Thursday card


Citing a reduction in horses on the grounds as the meet nears its end, Thistledown has canceled its eight-race card on Thursday.

Thistledown will race Friday, as scheduled.

“Taking the breather will help us maximize our field size for the remaining seven days of live racing,” said racing secretary Bill Couch.

Thistledown’s 2011 meet closes Nov. 5.
