FLORENCE, KY . . . February 13, 2004 . . . Turfway Park officials have cancelled live racing for tonight, Friday, February 13, again citing the freeze-and-thaw cycle that affects the surface of the track.
The track remains open for its regular simulcast schedule.
The cancellation is the third consecutive such decision and the seventh whole-card cancellation since the Winter/Spring Meet began January 1. The track also has cancelled mid-card four times during the meet. The last day Turfway was able to present live racing was Sunday, February 8, when three races were run before the remaining seven were cancelled.
One year ago, during the 2003 Winter/Spring Meet, 15 days of live racing were cancelled, most in February.
