Opening day has been delayed at an Illinois horse race track because of a spring snowstorm.

For the first time in its 87-year history, Fairmount Park in Collinsville has had to postpone opening day.

Snow and ice has to be removed gently because the track is made of several layers.

Caretakers must then inspect all the other materials that make up the track to ensure it is safe.

Opening day was supposed to be Tuesday. It has been moved to Friday.
