The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has canceled Saturday’s live racing program at Aqueduct Racetrack due to a powerful winter storm forecast to impact the New York City metropolitan area throughout the day.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter weather advisory for the downstate region. The NWS forecast, which aligns with NYRA’s independent weather services, is calling for accumulating snow with sustained high winds and gusts up to 50 mph.
Saturday’s featured $100,000 Correction will be re-scheduled for Saturday, March 19.
Aqueduct Racetrack will remain open for simulcasting.
Live racing at Aqueduct will resume on Sunday, March 13 with a nine-race card featuring the $100,000 Damon Runyon. First post on Sunday is 1:20 p.m. Eastern.
