Apparently NYRA was ready to run the races today and, despite how bad the weather was, "We thought the conditions were okay." The jockeys had to refuse to ride in order for management to make that announcement. :roll:

They just announced no racing tomorrow (2/9) at Aqueduct due to the impending snow storm. The area is supposed to get hit with 8 to 10 inches of snow, accompanied by winds in the 20-30 mph range.

Santa Anita has cancelled racing tomorrow (Friday) due to the expected big rainstorm.
ETA: Add Los Alamitos to the SoCal cancellations. On the plus side, it sounds like that means TVG will be providing better coverage of the stakes racing from Australia on Friday night. :D

Not a cancellation, but those Texas storms late Sunday and early Monday left some damage at Retama Park.

Tornadoes Wipe Out Retama Tote Board, Damage Grandstand
One of at least four confirmed tornadoes that careened through the San Antonio area late Sunday and early Monday caused significant damage at Retama Park. No injuries to people at the track were reported, and the Quarter Horses stabled on the grounds for training were unscathed.

It's brutal in SoCal, but the heat is even hitting areas of California that normally have more moderate temps. It's probably a good thing that Santa Anita is not racing tomorrow. It looks like the heat is dropping a bit by the weekend, but I think it will still be in the high 80s.

Evangeline Downs has cancelled turf racing for the rest of the year.
If your track maintenance crew can't get grass to grow, do you blame global warming? :P

“Horsemen are being given the option to keep their horses at Gulfstream, Gulfstream Park West or move to our training facility at Palm Meadows in Palm Beach."

:shock: So...which facility has the highest elevation and the sturdiest stables?
