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.
