Bad weather forced the cancellation of live racing cards at Philadelphia Park, Beulah Park and Charles Town Races Saturday. In addition, snow flurries forced Turfway Park to abandon the final three races on its Saturday card and Mountaineer Park also announced it was canceling.
Charles Town also canceled its live card for Sunday. It is expected to resume racing on Feb. 11 with a 7:15 p.m. EST opening post time.
Live racing is expected to resume on Sunday at 1:15 p.m. at Beulah, which was also forced to cancel Friday due to unsafe track conditions brought about by heavy rain.
At Philadelphia, the track remained open for simulcasting on Saturday and was scheduled to resume live racing on Sunday beginning at 12:25 p.m.
