Storm Cancels Racing at Woodbine

Poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of racing at Woodbine Dec. 2.

Heavy snowfall and freezing rain in the Toronto area forced the cancellation of the Dec. 2 live Thoroughbred racing program at Woodbine.

The afternoon's feature race, the $150,000 Ontario Lassie Stakes for 2-year-old fillies bred in Canada, is re-scheduled for the night of Dec. 5. First-race post time is set for 6:45 p.m. EST.

Highly-regarded Short Shorts, trained and co-owned by Catherine Day Phillips, will go after her first added-money victory. She enters the Lassie off a third-place finish in the South Ocean Stakes Nov. 7.

The scheduled forecast for Dec. 5 includes cloudiness with periods of snow, but heavy precipitation is not likely.
