Extreme winter season weather struck the Mid-Atlantic area, triggering Laurel Park to cancel live racing



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

Live racing returns Monday when Laurel will run an unique Presidents Day vacation program with a 12:25 p.m. very first race post time.

The MJC’s off-track wagering websites will stay open for simulcasting.

It’s the 2nd successive day Laurel has actually cancelled live racing. The Maryland Jockey Club delayed Saturday’s Winter season Sprintfest program including 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 season Sprintfest program consists of the $100,000 Wonder Wood for 3-year-olds and $100,000 Wide Nation 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 women at about 1 1/16 miles.
