Hurricane Sandy Forces Racing Cancellations | BloodHorse.com
Live racing in the Northeast has been cancelled for at least two days due to Hurricane Sandy.
Delaware Park, Parx Racing, and Suffolk Downs canceled racing for Oct. 29, while Parx also will be closed Oct. 30. The other two tracks don’t race on Tuesdays.
New Jersey simulcast outlets, including Monmouth Park and Meadowlands, also are closed Oct. 29-30. Belmont Park and Aqueduct will be closed for simulcasting on those dates. Telebet and Internet wagering through NYRA Rewards also will be suspended on both days.
The grandstand structures at Belmont and Aqueduct are official evacuation centers for the New York City Office of Emergency Management and the buildings will remain open on Monday and Tuesday for evacuee processing. NYC-OEM personnel will be on site at both locations throughout the storm to assist evacuees, operating on the first floor of the grandstand at Belmont and on the Resorts World Casino New York City portion of the property at Aqueduct. Evacuees reporting to either location will be processed by NYC-OEM and transferred to nearby shelters.
