Laurel Park | Maryland Jockey Club

Laurel Park, the Maryland track with a new dirt surface that was hit by winter weather this week, cancelled the Jan. 6 nine-race card due to the continuing effects of the winter storm, announced the Maryland Jockey Club (MJC) Thursday. The storm brought sleet, freezing rain, and snowfall to the area.

Laurel, as well as Pimlico, Rosecroft, and the MJC OTB Network, will remain open for simulcasting.

Live racing at Laurel is scheduled to resume Friday, Jan. 7. First post is 12:25 p.m.
