Severe Thunderstorm Forces Cancellation Of Thursday’s Finale At Laurel Park

A severe thunderstorm accompanied by heavy lightning rolled through Laurel Park with eight minutes to post, forcing the Maryland Jockey Club to cancel Thursday’s ninth-race finale out of safety concerns for its horses and horsemen.

Along with the storm, a tornado warning was issued for northeastern Prince George’s County, which includes the Laurel area.

Refunds were issued for all win, place, show, exacta, trifecta, superfecta and Super Hi-5 wagers in Race 9, with consolation payouts issued for the daily double, Pick 3, Pick 4, Late Pick 5 and 20-cent Rainbow 6 wagers.

There will be a carryover jackpot of $4,810.46 in the Rainbow 6 when live racing returns with a nine-race program Friday, Sept. 4 starting at 12:40 p.m.
