Laurel | MJC

The Maryland Jockey Club will waive entry and starting fees for any Grade I winner of the past 12 months if they run in any MJC stakes race other than the GI Preakness S., it was announced Wednesday. Additionally, any Grade II winner who contests either the Bald Eagle Derby or Laurel Futurity–both scheduled for Sept. 21–will have their fees waved. “As Maryland racing continues to grow we’re hoping this incentive will strengthen our stakes schedule and help us build some stakes to the graded level,” said Maryland Jockey Club Racing Secretary Chris Merz.
