HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Oaklawn Park has canceled live
thoroughbred racing at the track this weekend because of snow.
The announcement Friday means the operation will go a week
without horses on the track or bettors at the windows. Racing also
was canceled Thursday and Friday because the track was frozen
following 3 inches of rain and three days of below-freezing
Oaklawn general manager of racing David Longinotti said the
track's plans to resume racing on Saturday and Sunday were wiped
out when 3 inches of snow fell Friday.
The track has canceled live racing for six days this season,
more than 10 percent of its 56-day live-racing season.
