Due to projected wind chills of 20 degrees below zero, Miami Valley Raceway's Wednesday night program has been canceled.
Horses scheduled in qualifying races for Wednesday night will be carried over (as is) to Thursday night at 5:15 p.m. Additional qualifying races will be scheduled for Friday night, so horses that originally entered for Thursday qualifiers are welcome to re-enter prior to 1 p.m. Thursday for Friday instead.
The MVG draw for Saturday night's races will still take place Wednesday.
Also, The Raceway at Western Fair District has cancelled its Wednesday night program due to the combination of snow squall conditions and extreme cold temperatures in the London area.
Heavy snowfall and blowing snow hit the region overnight leading to several cancellations and road closures. The forecast is calling for more of the same into Wednesday evening.
The track will be open for simulcasting today with live racing set to resume this Friday night with a first post of 7:15 p.m.
