Acting upon the recommendation of the Delaware Thoroughbred Racing Commission chief veterinarian Dr. John T. Peters, live racing at Delaware Park has been canceled for July 18 due to excessive heat.

Peters said racing under such conditions would pose substantial health risks to horses, riders, and participants.

The track plans to resume live racing July 19.
