Friday racing at Aqueduct canceled due to extreme cold weather
by Pat McKenna
The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has canceled Friday’s live racing program at Aqueduct Racetrack due to extremely cold weather forecast in the New York City metropolitan area.
The National Weather Service forecast, which aligns with NYRA’s independent weather services, is calling for extremely cold temperatures with the potential for wind chill values near zero. As a result, NYRA officials made the decision to cancel Friday's eight-race card in the interest of the safety of all participants.
Aqueduct Racetrack will remain open for simulcasting.
Live racing at Aqueduct will resume on Saturday, January 22 with a nine-race card featuring the $100,000 Jazil and the $100,000 Franklin Square. First post on Saturday is 12:20 p.m. Eastern.
