January 18, 2000|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Races four through 10 at Laurel Park were canceled yesterday because of extreme cold and wind.

Two winners of the first half of the Twin Trifecta, who each selected 5-2-3 in the third race, were rewarded with a consolation payout of $3,238.20 each when the second half of the two-part wager (fifth race) was canceled.

The Twin Trifecta carry-over on Thursday (third and fifth races) will be $27,640.

Earlier in the day, live thoroughbred racing was canceled at Suffolk Downs in Boston, Aqueduct in New York and Philadelphia Park in Philadelphia, also because of weather conditions.
