Amended schedule for final three months of year adds two days


LAUREL, Md. - Laurel Park has amended its racing calendar for the final three months of the year.

Laurel was scheduled to race four days a week in October and November by adding Thursdays, and then return to a Friday-to-Sunday race week in December.

Laurel will now race Fridays to Mondays from Oct. 9 through Dec. 18.

Laurel will face less competition on Mondays than it would have on Thursdays and will be one of the leading Monday simulcast signals. The change will add two days to the track's schedule.

Laurel pushed back going to a four-day week until Oct 9 because Oct. 2 conflicts with the first day of the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic fall yearling sale.
