ELMONT, N.Y. - Belmont Park canceled its Friday card because of power problems in the area caused by the intense heat in the New York City region.

The temperature was expected to hit the 90s with high humidity.

Belmont struggled to power up the plant but could not overcome outages throughout the facility.

The track shut down completely, canceling simulcast wagering on site. The New York Racing Association Internet and telephone betting systems remained operational.
