  1. So tragic and cruel. Horseracing needs to stop. Here in Saratoga Springs, it should be too hot and humid to race—- but I bet they did. Does anyone know when races are stopped because of the weather?

  2. Not many are. Many tracks continue to race when it’s in the high 90s with heat indexes in the low 100s – and they race when it’s -5 and the track is frozen, and horses are obscured by blinding snow storms.
