Polar Vortex Pushes Back Opener


As the snow came, visibility diminished and WNY was thrown into deep freeze the Buffalo Raceway had to make the decision to cancel opening day of racing on January 8, 2014.

The polar vortex also spoiled the plans to conduct the draw for Friday’s race as well.

What this means is that you have more time to shovel out, bundle up and head out to Buffalo Raceway for opening day, which will now be Saturday January 11 at 6:40pm.

All promotions from Wednesday will be shifted to Saturday. All guests will receive a free program and race schedule magnet. Inside Track members will be able to redeem their coupons for a hockey puck as well.

Saturday evening ¬†racing is the perfect date night and there are still reservations available in the Clubhouse for the Winner’s Circle Caf√©. Call 716-649-1280 ext. 300 to make yours.

The cancelled races will tentatively be rescheduled for Thursday January 23 and Thursday January 30, pending approval from the NYS Gaming Commission.
