Pennsylvania racetrack cancels races due to running deer

Posted: Updated:
    
ERIE, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania thoroughbred track has canceled its racing card for a second day as officials deal with deer running onto the track during races.
    
The Erie Times-News says one deer ran onto the track at Presque Isle Downs & Casino on Sunday, cutting in front of the lead horse during the fourth race. Four other races scheduled for that afternoon were canceled as a precaution, even though the deer didn't collide with any horses.
    
Officials also canceled racing cards for Monday and Tuesday while they look for solutions to the problem.
    
Casino vice president and general manager Jeff Favre says officials are taking the situation seriously and don't want a jockey or horse to get hurt by a deer.
    
The track may have officials walk along the track before races to keep deer away.
