Pimlico Race Course cancelled its Friday card after Race 5 due to heavy rains that swept through the area.
“There was a lot of rain in a very short period of time and our priority is always the safety of our human and equine athletes as well as our patrons,” said Maryland Jockey Club President and General Manager Sal Sinatra. “We felt it was in the best interest of everyone to cancel the remainder of the program.”
Racing resumes Saturday with a nine-race program and a first race post of 1:10 p.m.
