Tropical Storm Isaac forces cancellations
Tropical Storm Isaac, which is expected to become a hurricane as it moves into the northern Gulf of Mexico, has forced a pair of tracks to cancel races. Both Fair Grounds and Calder have announced cancellations over several days.
Fair Grounds Race Course declared a mandatory evacuation of its barn area in advance of Tropical Storm Isaac. All four days of live racing scheduled for this week, Wednesday to Saturday, have been canceled.
