Raining and too many turf races.

I understand why NYRA canceled and it wasn't the rain that has stopped.

The P6 with an enormous carryover got busted before it started with five legs changing from grass to dirt. The P6 wager cancellations with a P4 and P5 in action reverting to ALL for a winner in race 4 had the NYRA computer smoking while it tried to figure out consos as late scratches were going into the system.

The tote system melted, plain and simple. Once the races were pulled off the weeds late with a huge P6 carryover going into Leg 1 the syndicates, along with Joe Blow and Sally the Stab, hit the system with gargantuan cancellations.

Even if the present computer system could handle new P6 wagers there would not be enough time or resources to capture the handle that a $194K carryover would warrant. NYRA canceled the day as the skies brightened but the rains were heavy and the turf courses became a sodden bog.
