On a day when it was already off the turf, Laurel Park has been forced to cancel its Thursday card as a result of a water pipe issue. It is the first full-day cancellation of Laurel’s races since January 31.

The issue occurred in a pipe along the outer rail of the main track. Racing secretary Chris Merz said via text that the track crew had caught the issue early enough that he expected live racing to resume as scheduled on Friday. The track’s new post time is 12:25 p.m.

Five races from today’s card — races 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 — are being brought back as extra races.
