The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has canceled Friday’s live racing program at Aqueduct Racetrack in Ozone Park, N.Y., due to dangerously high winds forecast to impact the New York metropolitan area throughout the day.

The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for Friday with current forecasts calling for sustained winds from 25-35 mph and gusts up to 60 mph. As a result, NYRA has cancelled live racing on Friday in the interest of the safety of all participants.
