Delta Downs has made changes to the final days of its 2018-19 Thoroughbred season. The meeting was originally scheduled to wrap up on Saturday, March 9 but will now end with an extra day of live racing on Tuesday, March 12. The special race day will also include an early post time of 1:10 pm Central Time. The extra race day was added to compensate for cancelled races on February 27 and 28 due to poor weather conditions.
In addition to the extra race day the track has also altered post times on Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9 to accommodate expanded 12-race cards. The first race on each of those days will take place at 4:55 pm instead of the customary 5:25 pm time slot.
