NEW YORK -- Live racing has been canceled at Aqueduct because of a forecast of high winds.

With gusts of 30 mph to 40 mph expected, the New York Racing Association called off Wednesday's card. The Big A remains open for simulcasting.

Live racing is expected to resume Thursday for the traditional Thanksgiving feature Fall Highweight Handicap, a Grade 3 stakes for 3 year olds and up. On tap for the weekend are two graded stakes.
