Laurel Park cancels Monday card


Laurel Park canceled its nine-race card for Monday due to poor racetrack conditions stemming from winter weather. Laurel and nearby Pimlico Race Course are still open for simulcasting, and live racing is scheduled to resume at Laurel on Friday at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

“After an unexpected freeze on Sunday, the freeze-thaw situation has made the racetrack uneven,” Maryland Jockey Club general manager Sal Sinatra said in a statement. “It is in the best interest of safety for horses and riders that this decision has been made.”
