MJC to seek approval to begin racing at Laurel May 30

The Maryland Jockey Club will seek approval from the Maryland Racing Commission to commence live racing Saturday, May 30, for the first day of the Laurel Park condition book. Entries already have been drawn.

The industry fully expects official approval from the MRC to be granted during its meeting May 28. The second day of the condition book, for which entries have been drawn, is expected to be Sunday, May 31. The MTHA will provide an update after the meeting.

The MRC adopted several regulations before live racing was suspended in mid-March, and the MTHA and the MJC approved other changes designed to assist horsemen in advance of the resumption of live racing. The notices and reminders are available here.
