Nor'easter Wipes Out Aqueduct's Weekend Cards

Aqueduct’s live St. Patrick’s Day card Saturday and the live program for Sunday were canceled  after a ferocious Nor’easter on Friday left the New York City Metropolitan area covered overnight with a dangerous mixture of snow, ice and rain.

The Big A, however, will remain open for simulcasting and Telebet wagering on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday’s feature race, the $100,000-added Cicada (gr. III) for 3-year-old fillies at six furlongs, will be run on March 24. It will be open to the original 26 nominees and re-drawn later this week. The other races will be brought back as extra races in the future.

Live racing is to resume on March 21, with a first-race post of 1 p.m. Eastern.
