Sunday’s Card At Laurel Cancelled Due To Storm; Racing To Resume With Holiday Program On Monday

Due to a winter storm in the Mid-Atlantic region, Laurel Park in Laurel, Md., has cancelled Sunday’s nine-race program.

Live racing returns Monday when Laurel will run a special Presidents Day holiday program with a 12:25 p.m. first race post time.

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

It’s the second consecutive day Laurel has cancelled live racing. The Maryland Jockey Club postponed Saturday’s Winter Sprintfest program featuring the $250,000 Runhappy Barbara Fritchie (G3) and $250,000 General George (G3) to Saturday, Feb. 20.

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.
