Ajax Downs cancels race card due to weather


Published September 22, 2021 at 4:38 pm

Ajax Downs has cancelled today’s race card due to weather, with “significant” rainfall and possible thunderstorms expected.

The $61,020 Picov Derby for three-year-old quarter-horses was supposed to highlight today’s card. There’s no official word yet if the race would be moved to next week, though local writer and handicapper Jennifer Morrison said that is the “most likely” outcome.

Racing will return to the Ajax racetrack new Wednesday, September 29.
