Laurel Park cancels Jan. 17 card

Snow, rain, and freezing temperatures battered Maryland Sunday evening and overnight, and as a result, the Maryland Jockey Club made a late-breaking decision to cancel its scheduled card for Monday, January 17.

Four races on the Monday card are being brought back as extras for Saturday, January 22. Those four are today’s third, fifth, sixth, and seventh. Those are a $5,000 claimer, a $12,500 claimer, a starter/optional claimer, and a first-level allowance. All are for older runners.

Laurel Park is scheduled to resume racing on Thursday, January 20. The 10-race card is slated to kick off at 12:10 p.m.
