FLORENCE, KY . . . February 9, 2010 . . . After hearing from horsemen, Turfway Park has reversed a previous decision regarding the Likely Exchange Stakes and has rescheduled the $50,000 race for Saturday, February 13.
Nominations will close Wednesday, February 10, at 12:00 noon, and entries will be taken Thursday. The one-mile Likely Exchange is carded for fillies and mares four-years-old and up.
"The decision came down to good customer service," said track president Robert N. Elliston. "The horsemen are our customers and some have prepared horses based on our stakes schedule. After hearing from them we decided we could best serve them by rescheduling this race."
The race originally was scheduled as part of the February 6 card, which was canceled due to complications from the weekend's winter storm.
The Dust Commander Stakes, a mile race for older horses, also will run February 13 as originally scheduled. First post Saturday is 1:10pm.
