Oaklawn Park, which canceled its Saturday program due to a frozen racetrack, also canceled its Sunday and Monday cards when overnight temperatures dropped down to 18 degrees.
With a high of 31 expected for Sunday and continued frigid temperatures forecast for Sunday night, the decision was made to cancel the entire weekend.
Monday's $250,000 Southwest Stakes, which was to feature Lawyer Ron, will now be run next Saturday.
The Pippin Stakes and Martha Washington, which also were canceled, will be run Thursday and Friday, respectively.
The track remains open for simulcasting.
