YONKERS CANCELS TUESDAY LIVE RACING, ALL SIMULCASTING
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Monday, January 6, 2014-In what could be a first, there's a "racing cancelled-polar vortex." Yonkers Raceway has scrapped its live racing program and all simulcasting for Tuesday (Jan. 7), due to the bone-chilling temperatures in the greater New York area...among other places.

Live racing is scheduled to resume Thursday (Jan. 9), with the usual 7:10 PM first post. Afternoon simulcasting is scheduled to resume Wednesday (Jan. 8).

Horsemen are advised that the draw for Saturday's (Jan. 11) card shall be conducted as usual, with the entry box closing at 4 PM. For more information, please contact the race office at (914) 457-2627.
