The winter storm on the East Coast has forced the cancellation of Thursday race cards at three racetracks. Due to the poor weather, Dover Downs, Freehold Raceway and Monticello Raceway have canceled their scheduled live cards.
Also, the Meadowlands and Winners Bayonne OTW will be closed for simulcasting Thursday. The track and Winners are scheduled to re-open for simulcasting on Friday, Jan. 5, at 11 a.m.
Monticello will remain closed on Friday. The track announced Thursday afternoon that because of the excessive colt and expected wind chill temperatures Friday's card has been canceled. Live racing at Monticello is now set to resume on Monday, Jan. 8.
