The lingering effects of Winter Storm Landon combined with frigid temperatures and low wind-chill factors on the backside of the storm forced the cancellation of Saturday's live racing program at Laurel Park outside of Baltimore.

Friday's card was called off after the afternoon's third race owing to deteriorating track conditions.

Laurel, Pimlico, Rosecroft, and the MJC OTB Network were to remain open for simulcasting.

Officials are hoping to conduct racing Sunday afternoon, Feb. 6.
