No Jan. 19 Live Racing at Oaklawn

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. - Oaklawn management has canceled Friday’s nine-race card due to track conditions as the cold weather keeps the ponies in the barn for a second straight day.

Track officials said in a Friday morning news release that temperatures were record lows Tuesday and Wednesday and only slightly warmer Thursday. The track has not thawed completely and for the safety of the horses and horsemen, the decision was made to cancel racing.

Live racing had also been canceled on Thursday.

Oaklawn will remain open Friday for gaming and simulcast racing. The game room will remain open until 6 a.m.  

Live racing is scheduled to resume Saturday with a 1 p.m. first post.
