Racing moves to Pimlico

March 25, 1992

Action shifts to Pimlico tomorrow for 71 racing days (through June 30) with the $50,000 Politely Stakes at six furloungs highlighting the opening card.

No racing is scheduled Easter Sunday, but Pimlico will run the following day, April 20. There will also be racing on Memorial Day, May 25.

Attendance and handle were slightly off from last year for the last 35 days of the Laurel Race Course meet, which concluded yesterday.

Those 35 days originally were scheduled to be run at Pimlico, but were shifted to Laurel so that track repairs could be made.

The handle was down 2.9 percent, to an average of $1,623,766, and attendance dropped 1.6 percent, to an average of 10,530, reflecting the trend in racing during the recession.
