Due to high winds and frigid temperatures, the New York Racing Association (NYRA) has canceled live racing Friday at Aqueduct Racetrack. The forecast, which calls for sustained high winds gusting as high as 39 mph, is expected to create wind chill factors as low as -5 degrees and will impact the New York metropolitan area. The conditions are considered dangerous and NYRA has canceled the entire eight-race Friday card in the interest of safety.
Live racing at Aqueduct–which was not impacted Thursday–is expected to resume Saturday, Jan. 30, with a nine-race card highlighted by the GIII Toboggan S. First post on Saturday is 12:20 p.m. ET.
