YONKERS, NY, Sunday, October 30, 2016—A late-afternoon downpour forced the cancellation (unsafe track conditions) of Yonkers Raceway’s final two races during Sunday afternoon’s scheduled 11-race card.
After a lengthy delay, the horses did parade for the 10th race, but returned to the paddock during more track maintenance. The surface was eventually deemed ‘unplayable’ and the last two races were scrapped.
Live racing is scheduled to resume Monday night (Oct. 31st), with a Trick or Treat first post of 7:10 PM.
The abbreviated card resulted in some abridged multi-race payouts…
Pick 3 (races 8 thru 10) – winning combination (1-6-all) $2 payout $43.80Pick 5 (races 7 thru 11) – winning combination (1-1-6-all-all) $.50 payout $55.87
