Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races has added live racing on Sunday night, Aug. 22, following approval given Monday by the West Virginia Racing Commission. The special Sunday card will kick off at Charles Town’s standard first race post time of 7:00 p.m. ET and will be the same program from this past Saturday evening that was canceled.
Charles Town canceled its Saturday card after announcing its jockeys refused to ride for non-safety related reasons. The track confirmed on Twitter that the jockeys refused to ride after they were unable to cash their checks. The track added that jockeys were advised they would be allowed to cash their checks at the casino cage.
