The New York Racing Association canceled racing Jan. 20 at Aqueduct Racetrack and morning training at Belmont Park due to arctic temperatures forecast to impact the New York metropolitan area throughout the day.

The $150,000 Interborough Stakes, which had been expected to headline the Saturday card, is now scheduled for Jan. 27, with entries to be taken Jan. 24.

The Maryland Jockey Club also canceled racing Jan. 19-21 at Laurel Park due to a winter storm that has dropped several inches of snow across Northern and Central Maryland.
