- Er, today that is! Received from NYRA:
Live racing at Aqueduct was cancelled Wednesday afternoon, the result of a winter storm that began Tuesday afternoon with snow, which later turned to freezing rain and, finally, heavy rain.And, for the first time, there you have it from NYRA's communications director John Lee - straight from the horse's mouth(piece), so to speak...
Aqueduct remained open for simulcast wagering.
Given the forecast for improving weather and the prospect of a resolution to the NYRA franchise issue, racing is expected to resume Thursday, with first-race post of 12:30 p.m.
