The Maryland Jockey Club has released a 15-day condition book in advance of the resumption of racing at Laurel Park.
The condition book, which is available here via Equibase, does not assign dates to each of the days given the fact it remains unclear when live racing can resume.
According to the book, purse levels are the same as they were before live racing was suspended in mid-March. For instance, the bottom purse is $15,000 for $5,000 claimers, $33,000 for the waiver-maiden $40,000-$35,000 claimer, and $40,000 for maiden special weight events. There also are open $55,000 allowance races on the dirt and turf.
The MJC racing office said there won’t be an accompanying index at the present time.
