Due to the effects that wildly fluctuating temperatures have had on their racing surfaces, Buffalo Raceway and Monticello Raceway have abandoned their Wednesday (Feb. 24) programs.

After discussions with horsemen's representatives, racing at Buffalo Raceway for Wednesday (Feb. 24) has been cancelled due to thawing track conditions.

Buffalo Raceway's chief operations officer, Jim Mango, said of the cancellation, "Who would have thought we'd have 55 degrees and sunshine after the past two weeks of weather we've had?"

Racing is scheduled to return on Saturday (Feb. 27) at 6 p.m. with an 11-race program set. For more information, including the latest news, race replays, results and entries, go to
