Turf Paradise cancels Saturday live card because of heavy rain


PHOENIX  - Turf Paradise canceled its Saturday program after heavy rains in the Phoenix area wreaked havoc with the racing surface. The track had canceled the final two races of its Friday card when the rains first hit.

Saturday's cancelation included the $35,000 City of Phoenix Stakes, a sprint for fillies and mares 3-years-old and upward. The track has yet to announce when the race will be brought back.
