Churchill Downs closed its simulcasting operation because of freezing conditions.

With icy conditions in the Lexington and Louisville areas preventing ship-in horses from safely reaching the track, Turfway Park has canceled live racing for Thursday, Dec. 16. Racing is expected to resume Friday, Dec. 17 with first post at 5:30 p.m. EST.

Turfway remains open for simulcasting but Churchill Downs has cancelled its simulcasting operations for the day due to the weather and poor road conditions. It is expected to reopen on Friday.
