Saturday’s live racing program at Aqueduct has been canceled, due to a forecast that calls for dangerously low wind chill values in the New York City metropolitan area, according to the New York Racing Association.

Temperatures are forecast to be between -6 and -11 Celsius with windchill values around -20 Celsius, at least early on Saturday. The NYRA also canceled training Saturday at Belmont Park, where all the locally based horses who race at Aqueduct are stabled.
