SARATOGA SPRINGS — Racing on the Saratoga Race Course has been preemptively canceled for Saturday in anticipation of extreme warmth in the course of the day.
The choice was made by the New York Racing Affiliation, which operates the monitor, along with the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Affiliation and state regulators. A warmth index starting from 105 to 110 levels is anticipated for Saturday, in response to the Nationwide Climate Service.
“This is a responsible and prudent decision that aligns with our New York racetrack heat management protocol designed to ensure safe racing for all participants,” state Gaming Fee Equine Medical Director Dr. Scott E. Palmer mentioned in an announcement.
