Laurel alters schedule for first two months of winter meet


Laurel Park will race on Wednesdays instead of Fridays during January and most of February at its 2014 winter meeting.

The schedule change, agreed upon by the Maryland Jockey Club and the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, was approved by the Maryland Racing Commission at its monthly meeting Tuesday.

Friday racing will be added for the final five weeks of the meet, beginning Feb. 28.
