Oak Grove Cancels Sunday Card

Due to severe rain and wind that pummeled the Oak Grove, Ky. area on Saturday afternoon, qualifiers and races scheduled for Sunday, October 27, 2019 have been canceled.

“At approximately 3:05 p.m. this afternoon, derecho-like winds and rain came through the area,” said Director of Racing Peter Szymanski. “And for a sustained 15-minute period, winds up to 75 miles per hour hammered us and the surrounding area.

“As a result, most of infrastructure has been disabled...power, betting, beverage and food tents, fencing, and even our new scaffold-like structure that housed the judges, charter, video services and the announcer. Thankfully, all exited the structure safely.”

As of this writing, the majority of the City of Oak Grove is without power. Horsemen are asked to contact the race office for further information-assuming power is restored soon.

Live harness racing is scheduled to resume next Friday, November 1, 2019, with a 1:05 p.m. post time.
