HOT SPRINGS, AR (News release) - Oaklawn has cancelled its Thursday card due to below freezing temperatures.
Oaklawn’s track crew worked the track overnight and will remain on the track all day and night to prevent any freeze that could put the weekend racing in jeopardy.
The track lost part of the card Sunday, Feb. 3 because of winter weather, but this is the first time this season that it has lost an entire card.
Oaklawn will remain open Thursday for simulcast wagering and gaming.
Live racing at Oaklawn is scheduled to resume Friday with a 1:30 p.m. first post.
