FLORENCE, Ky., Dec. 17, 2010 - Turfway Park was forced to cancel the last five races on Friday's card when a transformer blew just after the gates opened for the seventh race, leaving half the racing surface in the dark. Duke Energy responded but a new fuse also blew, and after more than an hour's delay the decision was made to cancel. Repairs are continuing and racing is expected to resume Saturday at 1:10pm. Simulcasting and events in the grandstand continue without interruption.
