Due to a forecast of excessive heat, Colonial Downs has canceled its opening-day program for Monday, July 27, when two steeplechase races were to be run.
The New Kent, Va., track has rescheduled the canceled date for Sunday, Aug. 2, and three steeplechase races will be carded on that program. As a result, no steeplechase races will be run on Monday, Aug. 3.
Entries for the Sunday, Aug. 2 program will close on Monday, July 27. Trainers are urged to contact the NSA office for further details.
Colonial also will add a steeplechase race to the Monday, Aug. 10 program, which now will have three jump races.
