Trainers and jockeys are praising NYRA for the decision to cancel racing at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday.
This is the first time in 13 years NYRA has cancelled the races due to extreme heat.
The actual temperature is expected to be in the 90s. However, the humidity is expected to make it feel like it's well over 100 degrees.
Right now, racing is expected to resume on Sunday.
Hear from one of the trainers who says he has no doubt NYRA made the right call, by watching the video of Brooke Selby's story.
Looks like these boys are keeping ?? in the shade! Huge fans line the indoor/outdoor stables at @BondRacing007 in #Saratoga to help them prep for this weekend’s potential heat wave. Coming up on @WNYT I’ll tell you about @TheNYRA #Saratoga decision to call off Saturday’s #races. pic.twitter.com/qAErZzdvpd— Brooke Kelly Selby (@brookekselby) July 19, 2019
