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

YONKERS, NY, Friday, February 14, 2014This is not-a repeat, not-a repeat, though it's beginning to seem that way. Yonkers Raceway has cancelled its live racing program and all simulcasting for today (Friday, Feb. 14), due to after effects of the latest snowstorm to sublet the greater New York area.

Live racing (and afternoon/evening simulcasting) is scheduled to resume Saturday (Feb. 15), with the usual 7:10 PM first post.

Horsemen are advised that there is indeed a double-draw today (Friday) for next Tuesday and Thursday (Feb. 18 and 20), with the entry box closing at 4 PM. For more information, please contact the race office at (914) 457-2627.

The casino is scheduled to open at 12 Noon, closing at 4 AM (updates when/if necessary).
