Charles Town scraps Sunday race card

Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

Due to the anticipated heat in the region, with temperatures expected to reach the mid to upper 90s and the potential for severe thunderstorms, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races has cancelled its afternoon card scheduled for Sunday in Charles Town, W.Va.

Post time for the card was scheduled for 1 p.m. and the announcement marks the second consecutive Sunday card that Charles Town has cancelled due to the record heat experienced in the Mid-Atlantic and elsewhere over the past two weeks.

Charles Town, which conducts live racing in the evening on weekdays and Saturday, will resume racing as scheduled this upcoming Thursday, July 12. Post time for the first race on Thursday's card will be the standard 7:15 p.m. start time for Charles Town's evening programs.

Nine of the races involved in the two cancellations will be made up through the addition of a 10th race on the final 9, non-Sunday cards in July.

The remaining nine will be rescheduled and announced in the coming days.
