Chilled out: Aqueduct cancels racing Friday, fourth straight card wiped out by frigid temps


NEW YORK — The New York Racing Association has canceled Friday's races at Aqueduct due to expected frigid temperatures and strong wind gusts.

There has been no racing at the track since Saturday. The Sunday and Monday programs were canceled because of cold weather and sub-zero wind chill conditions. No racing was scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday, and Thursday's card was wiped out by the winter chill.

The latest cancellation is the 13th this winter at Aqueduct.

Racing is scheduled to resume on Saturday.
