The Maryland Jockey has announced changes to the training schedule at Laurel Park to accommodate a maintenance project on the main track that is expected to take one week.
The project is scheduled to begin Tuesday, Aug. 23. The entire schedule is subject to the weather and may need to be adjusted accordingly.
MJC Track Superintendent Chris Bosley said the work involves a section of the homestretch that was repaired in the fall of 2021. An inspection that was part of the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority’s Racetrack Safety Program, which began July 1, determined that the area requires further review, he said.
