- 26 Oct
The Maryland Jockey Club track maintenance crew at Laurel Park Oct. 26 was busy restoring the base and cushion on part of the main track after repairs were done to a leaking water pipe located about 12 feet under the surface.
The problem was discovered after training Oct. 24. The track crew and MJC facilities staff worked into the evening over three days to repair the breach as quickly as possible.
Training is scheduled to resume Monday, Oct. 28. The situation resulted in the cancellation of four racing programs Oct. 24-27.
