The New York Racing Association canceled Aqueduct Racetrack's live racing program April 3 because of extremely high winds in the New York metropolitan area.
Wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour caused New York Racing Association officials to cancel racing at Aqueduct for Nov. 27.
Heavy wind gusts caused unsafe conditions and forced the cancellation of live racing at both Woodbine and Hawthorne Sunday.
One day after leading to cancellation of the last two races at Hawthorne Race Course in Illinois, high winds also cancelled the Thursday card at New York's Aqueduct, Laurel Park in Maryland, and Woodbine in Canada.
Extreme high winds in the Chicago area forced Hawthorne Race course to cancel the final two races on its card on Wednesday due to unsafe conditions.
The winds which swept through the eastern half of the United States over the weekend left behind a casualty at Penn National Race Course--the infield tote board.
