Oaklawn cancels Thursday's races

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn management made the decision to cancel Thursday’s nine-race card after more than five inches of rain left the track too saturated for racing.

“The safety of the horses and riders is always our first concern,” said Director of Racing David Longinotti. “The rain began about 3 p.m. Tuesday and has barely stopped since.”

Oaklawn remains open for gaming and simulcast racing. The game room will remain open until 3 a.m. 

Live racing is scheduled to resume Friday with a 1:30 p.m. first post.

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of Lonoke County dogs are in limbo at the Pulaski County Humane Society. They'll be there until a Supreme Court judge makes a decision. But it's getting costly.

"It's approximately two years, it will be two years, the end of June," said Dr. Teresa Medlock.

Dozens of dogs, 137 to be exact, have been at the Pulaski County Humane Society for the last two years.

They were taken from Sandra Nance's Lonoke County property in 2012 after a search by the Humane Society and Lonoke County Sheriff's Department found the dogs living in poor conditions.

"They are evidence in the court system case and so we're entrusted with their care until the resolution of the case," Medlock said.
