Aqueduct cancels again following snowstorm

NEW YORK (AP) Aqueduct Racetrack has canceled Friday's card in an effort to save the upcoming weekend stakes.

A Thursday storm dumped several inches of snow and ice on the track surface. The New York Racing Association said maintenance crews will spend Friday stripping moisture from the track with the goal of having a safe and even surface for Saturday's card which features the $400,000 Gotham Stakes, a Kentucky Derby prep race.
