Laurel Park’s Winter Sprintfest Postponed Until Feb. 20 Due To Winter Storm

Due to a winter storm affecting the Mid-Atlantic region, Saturday’s Winter Sprintfest program at Laurel Park featuring the $250,000 Runhappy Barbara Fritchie (G3) and $250,000 General George (G3) has been postponed to Saturday, Feb. 20.

With a winter storm advisory issued through 7 a.m. Sunday and the area receiving a mix of freezing rain, ice and snow, Maryland Jockey Club officials chose to transfer the entire nine-race program out of safety for the horses and horsemen.

The MJC’s off-track betting sites will remain open for simulcasting.

In addition to the Barbara Fritchie and General George for older sprinters, the Winter Sprintfest program includes the $100,000 Miracle Wood for 3-year-olds and $100,000 Wide Country for 3-year-old fillies and the $100,000 John B. Campbell for 4-year-olds and up and $100,000 Nellie Morse for older females at about 1 1/16 miles.

There is a nine-race card scheduled for Sunday and a special nine-race Presidents Day holiday program on tap Monday, Feb. 15.
