With weather forecasts calling for near-record, triple-digit heat, officials at Churchill Downs Racetrack have decided to cancel the track’s live racing program scheduled for Thursday, June 28.
The cancelled Thursday racing card included nine races with a scheduled post time of 12:45 p.m. It was to have been the first of four racing programs set for the final week of the track’s Spring Meet, which will conclude on Sunday, July 1. Simulcast wagering on tracks from around North America will be offered at Trackside at Churchill in the track’s Clubhouse. Admission gates will open at 11:30 a.m.
With Thursday’s cancellation, Churchill Downs has three racing days remaining in its Spring Meet:
• Friday, June 29 — an 11-race twilight program with a post time of 2:45 p.m.;
• Saturday, Jun 30 — an 11-race “Downs After Dark” night racing program with 6 p.m. post;
• Sunday, July 1 — a “Closing Day” program for the 138th Spring Meet with 10 races scheduled.
Churchill Downs Racetrack President Kevin Flanery said his track team consulted with National Weather Service forecasters before making its decision to cancel Thursday’s racing, and would continue to do so while assessing the status of the three remaining racing programs during what forecasters predict will be several days of extreme heat in the region.
