Oaklawn Park, Penn National Cancel Friday

Sub-freezing temperatures in Arkansas force second straight cancellation Feb. 7.

With temperatures remaining below freezing for a second straight day, Oaklawn Park has been forced to cancel its Friday, Feb. 7 card.

The Hot Springs, Ark., track lost part of the card Sunday, Feb. 3, because of winter weather, and also had to cancel the Feb. 6 program because of the cold temperatures.  

Live racing at Oaklawn is scheduled to resume Saturday, Feb. 8, with a 1 p.m. (CST) first post.

Friday racing was also canceled at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, the 10th weather-related cancellation in 2014 at the Grantville, Pa., track.
