All that is true. But winter tracks cancel all the time, and it's really not much different that it's June and not January. Same scheduling juggling is managed somehow.

You'd rather they run the card as scheduled.
Sometimes cancelled races scatter to the four winds, others remain intact and repeatable. Some aren't brought back because they would conflict with book races. Entry schedules, alternative spots for cancelled horses, the likelihood that shippers will again enter, and even whether a cancelled race was the self-serving creation of agents or trainers ( that is, containing bad faith entries earmarked for scratching) also enter into the equation.

One thing is certain: the connections of most cancelled horses expect their race to be brought back and can't imagine why that might be ill-advised.
