Deep fields audition for Claiming Crown


In an attempt to increase Northeast horsemen’s participation in the Claiming Crown, Laurel Park will host Claiming Crown Preview Day on Sunday. The nine starter-allowance races on the card have the same conditions as the nine Claiming Crown races that will take place Dec. 5 at Gulfstream Park. Purses for the Laurel races are between 35 percent and 40 percent of what Gulfstream will offer. Total purses for the day are $410,000.
