The track lost all three of its scheduled racing days last week when a serious snow storm swept through the Mid-Atlantic region. The track did not race Monday because of frigid temperatures in the Philadelphia area.
The inclement weather has continued today. While the temperature is more moderate — though still below freezing — the area is experiencing “spotty areas of light freezing rain or drizzle.” Because the temperatures remain below freezing, that spotty rain will likely become patches of ice as time continues.
The track’s horsemen’s group, the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, was the first to announce the cancellation, on Twitter. The track’s racing office confirmed today’s closure.
