The Los Alamitos Race Course has canceled races for the third time in the first few days of its three-week Thoroughbred Meet due to fallout from the deaths of 30 horses at Santa Anita during its recently completed meet.
"Due to a shortage of entries, there'll be no daytime Thoroughbred racing Thursday," track officials said in a tweet released Saturday. "Racing resumes on Friday."
Los Alamitos cancelled its first Thursday and Friday races before its season started June 29, the Los Angeles Times reported.
