With frigid weather conditions affecting the Hot Springs, Arkansas, region, Oaklawn Park was forced to cancel live racing after the 4TH race on Monday. As a result, the eagerly-anticipated feature, the $250,000 Southwest S. (G3), has been postponed to Saturday.

Oaklawn officials noted Monday that severe winds, and the concomitant bitter wind chill, created potentially hazardous racetrack conditions.

The one-mile Southwest will now be redrawn. Entries will be taken on Thursday, and the Southwest will headline the 10-race card set for Saturday.

First post time on Saturday will be 1 p.m. (CST).
