Laurel Park cancelled live racing again Friday, Jan. 7, due to winter weather that disrupted the area and later added that racing would be cancelled through the weekend, according to a press release from the Maryland Jockey Club (MJC). A Monday snowstorm had resulted in the cancellation of training earlier in the week and the Maryland track also cancelled live racing Thursday. A fresh storm was sweeping through the area Thursday night and Friday morning, with Aqueduct also cancelling Friday's card.
Laurel will remain open for simulcasting, as will Pimlico, Rosecroft, and the MJC OTB Network.
Live racing at Laurel is scheduled to resume Saturday, Jan. 8, with first post at 12:25 p.m.
