Evangeline Downs was forced to cancel its schedule nine-race program on Saturday.

Inclement weather conditions forced Evangeline Downs in Opelousas, Louisiana, to cancel its scheduled nine-race program on Saturday.

The scrapped card included three trial heats for the $267,171 Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders’ Association Derby (R). On Friday, Evangeline Downs successfully ran 14 LQHBA Futurity (RG1) on a sloppy track. The finals for the LQHBA Derby and Futurity are scheduled for November 28.

At this time, there has been no word on when the canceled races would be rescheduled.
