Live Racing at Belmont Park canceled for Sunday, July 1
by NYRA Press Office
By order of the Stewards, the New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has canceled Sunday's live racing card due to extreme heat.
NYRA made every effort to run today's card as scheduled. A spike in afternoon temperatures prior to the first post made conditions unsuitable for racing.
Belmont Café and Aqueduct Racetrack will remain open for simulcasting. Online wagering is also available at NYRABets.com.
Sunday's featured stakes race, the $100,000 Saginaw for New York-bred 4-year-old will be rescheduled for a later date.
Live racing is scheduled to resume on Wednesday, July 4 at Belmont, with a first post of 1:30 p.m.
