LAUREL -- Yesterday's snowstorm not only caused officials at Laurel Race Course to cancel its card, but also brought about changes in the track's weekend format.
The programs for the Winter Sprintfest, which starts tomorrow ,, and continues through the President's Day holiday on Monday, have now been boosted by an extra race.
There are 13 races each day; post time is noon.
The revised lineup includes:
* Tomorrow: 12 live races, featuring the $200,000 Barbara Fritchie Handicap, and the Whirlaway Breeders' Cup simulcast from Aqueduct.
* Sunday: 11 live races, a retirement ceremony for the celebrated geldings Fire Plug, Silano and Due North, plus two simulcasts -- the $100,000 Busher Handicap (Aqueduct) and the $50,000 Davona Dale Stakes (Gulfstream).
