MJC Cancels Friday’s Live Program at Laurel Park

Fritchie (G3) Winner Hibiscus Punch Returns Saturday

LAUREL, MD – The Maryland Jockey Club has canceled Friday’s live nine-race program at Laurel Park after a winter storm swept through the area overnight and into the morning.

As a result the national weekly Stronach 5 wager, which was scheduled to open with Laurel’s ninth race, has also been cancelled and will return Friday, Jan. 14.

Laurel, Pimlico, Rosecroft and the MJC OTB Network remain open for simulcasting.

Live racing is scheduled to return to Laurel with a nine-race program Saturday that features the return of 2021 Runhappy Barbara Fritchie (G3) winner Hibiscus Punch in Race 8, a six-furlong optional claiming allowance for fillies and mares 4 and up.

First race post time is 12:25 p.m.
