From a Maryland Jockey Club release

In the spirit of the holiday season, the Maryland Jockey Club will reward generous-minded fans as part of its ‘Give a Gift, Get a Gift’ program Saturday, Dec. 1 at Laurel Park.

Everyone that drops off a new, unwrapped toy or makes a cash donation at the gift exchange table will receive a special gift from the MJC. All proceeds will benefit the Maryland Horsemen’s Assistance Foundation.

Fans are asked not to bring stuffed animals. Laurel will open its doors at 11 a.m. and the exchange will take place from noon to 4 p.m. in the grandstand entrance.

Laurel will host a full card of live racing Saturday beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Live racing returns to Laurel with a nine-race program Thursday, Nov. 29 starting at 12:30 p.m. and offering carryovers of $5,225.08 in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 (Races 4-9) and $1,985.61 in the $1 Super Hi-5 (Race 1).

Laurel will have a special noon post on Friday, Nov. 30 to accommodate a 10-race program whose final three races (Races 8-10) will be part of the weekly national $1 Stronach 5 wager. This week’s Stronach 5, which includes Races 2 and 3 from Golden Gate Fields, features a carryover of $88,149.41 from Nov. 23.
