PROVIDENCE FORGE, Va. (AP) - Colonial Downs has canceled its Sunday races because of the ongoing heat wave and is postponing a scheduled 15th anniversary celebration until next weekend.
A statement on the track's website said officials reached the decision because of "extreme heat that is expected to remain in Virginia through the weekend." Afternoon high temperatures Sunday are expected to approach 100 degrees. The races had been scheduled to begin at 12:55 p.m.
Colonial Downs Vice-President Jeanna Bouzek said in the statement that officials conferred with the Virginia Racing Commission and horsemen's representatives.
The track's 15th anniversary celebration was rescheduled for Saturday, July 14. It was to have taken place this weekend.
