Live Racing Canceled; Clinton Library Closed

February 19, 2006 - Posted at 12:57 p.m. CST

UNDATED (AP) _ Again, live racing at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs

has been canceled because of the icy weather and below-freezing

temperatures. The track will be closed today and tomorrow, when the

Southwest Stakes was to run for the President's Day holiday.

Simulcast and Instant Racing will be going on as usual, however,

both days.

Also closed for a second day is the Clinton library in Little

Rock. Preparations are being made, however, to open the library

tomorrow for President's Day. Special events are scheduled.

Musicians from the Arkansas Symphony will talk to children about

musical instruments and will perform in the Great Hall. There also

will be a free showing of the Kevin Costner movie ``Thirteen

Days.''
