LADBROKE DRC CANCELS RACING PROGRAMS FOR MARCH 24-25

 LIVONIA, Mich., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Ladbroke DRC has canceled its racing programs for today, Wednesday, March 24, and Thursday, March 25, because of unsafe track conditions. The track surface, which had absorbed considerable amounts of moisture due to the rain and snow of recent weeks, was worsened considerably by the sudden warmer temperatures and subsequent thaw.
 "It's unfortunate, but it's the right thing to do," Ladbroke DRC General Manager Richard Schnaars explained. "Our horsemen have expressed concern about racing Wednesday, and we felt that Thursday could be a problem as well. It's very slippery out there and we wouldn't want to compromise anyone's safety. We will be ready to go on Friday, however. The weather forecast is in our favor for a change."
 Ladbroke DRC was also forced to cancel racing on Sunday, March 14, because of cold temperatures and high winds. Officials are uncertain if or when any of the missed dates will be made up. Racing will resume Friday, March 26, with a 2 p.m. first post. Schnaars also said that Sunday, March 28, will be Fan Appreciation Day, with free admission offered to all. "This will hopefully benefit those inconvenienced by our cancellation," Schnaars commented.
