Laurel Park cancels Feb. 5 card

Lingering effects from winter storm Landon have forced the Maryland Jockey Club to cancel Saturday’s live nine-race card at Laurel Park.

In addition to the winter storm, which passed through the Mid-Atlantic region Thursday and Friday, freezing temperatures and wind chill were contributing factors to the cancellation.

Laurel was also forced to cancel Friday’s card after three of the planned eight races had been conducted. According to Equibase, it’s the sixth partially or completely canceled day at the track this year.

 Laurel’s planned partial ARC simulcast presentation from San Isidro has also been cancelled.

Laurel, Pimlico Race Course, Rosecroft and the MJC’s OTB network remain open for simulcasting.

Live action is scheduled to return to Laurel with an eight-race program Sunday. Post time is 12:25 p.m.
