High winds, winter storm cancels racing at tracks

BY foxsports • December 16, 2009

A winter storm has forced cancellation of racing at tracks in Illinois, Kentucky and New York.

Racing at Hawthorne Park near Chicago was called off Wednesday and Thursday due to severe winter storm advisories calling for several inches of snow and winds gusting over 50 mph.

Aqueduct Racetrack in New York and Turfway Park in Kentucky canceled racing Wednesday due to inclement weather including high winds.

The tracks remained open for simulcasting.
