Colonial’s Wednesday Race Card Taken Off the Turf; Post Time Moved Up To 5:00 PM
Races tonight (Wednesday) at Colonial Downs will be taken off the turf and held over the dirt track, and post time has been moved up to 5:00 PM from its originally scheduled 5:30 PM start time.
Seven of the nine races were scheduled to be run over Colonial’s Secretariat Turf Course — the second, and fourth through ninth. The first and third had already been scheduled to run on dirt.
Colonial’s dirt oval is 1 1/4 miles around, second largest in the country next to Belmont.
