Woodbine cancels final card due to cold


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - The final card of the Woodbine meeting was canceled after the second race Sunday when the jockeys refused to ride because of the cold weather. The temperature was around 14 degrees Fahrenheit when card started, and there were gusting winds from the west.

Patrick Husbands swept the double, and was the meeting’s leading rider, with 166 wins, four more than Jim McAleney, who led the standings during most of the year.
