From a Maryland Jockey Club release

Laurel Park announced today it will go ahead with its scheduled Friday afternoon program but has canceled live racing for both Saturday and Sunday due to an impending winter storm.

Laurel and Pimlico will be closed for simulcasting Saturday, but they are tentatively scheduled to open for simulcast wagering Sunday.

A weather system approaching the Baltimore-Washington area is expected to produce snow and blizzard conditions beginning late Friday.

Live racing will resume Monday, January 25, weather permitting.
