It’s the second consecutive day Laurel has canceled 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.
