Winter storm forces cancellation of Sunday live racing at Aqueduct

by NYRA Press Office



The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has canceled the remainder of Sunday's live racing program at Aqueduct Racetrack following the day's fourth race due to a powerful winter storm forecast to impact the New York City metropolitan area over the next 48 hours.

The National Weather Service, as well as NYRA's independent weather forecasting services, are calling for a mix of snow, sleet and heavy rain to continue throughout Sunday. As a result, NYRA has canceled live racing in the interest of the safety of all participants.

Aqueduct Racetrack will remain open for simulcasting.

Live racing is scheduled to resume on Thursday at Aqueduct with a nine-race card highlighted by the $100,000 Tepin in Race 3. First post is 12:20 p.m.
