Laurel track maintenance planned for July 12-14

Laurel Park will be closed for training Sunday, July 12, through Tuesday, July 14, for maintenance work on the surface.

Track Superintendent Chris Bosley said his crew plans to take a look at the base of the dirt surface near the five-eighths-mile pole, an area that has been worked on in the past.

“We’re just making sure it is still sound heading into the winter,” Bosley said. “This is the perfect time of the year for any type of base repairs if they are needed. Laurel never gets a break so it’s better to be proactive on checking spots and maintenance practices than to be reactive.”

The three-day project is planned weather permitting, the Maryland Jockey Club said. The MTHA will provide updates if necessary.
