Laurel to try live racing Sunday

January 21, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Laurel Race Course is to resume full-card, commingled simulcast wagering today, and live racing is expected to return Sunday. Tomorrow's live program was canceled because of track conditions after yesterday's snow and continued cold temperatures.

Rosecroft Raceway and Charles Town canceled today's card. Penn National will have live racing today.

Simulcast wagering, which will consist of several thoroughbred tracks, including Gulfstream Park, Santa Anita Park and Philadelphia Park, will be offered at Laurel and Pimlico race courses and the state's off-track betting facilities.

Rosecroft Raceway and Delmarva Downs will be closed for simulcasting today because of the lingering effects of the weather.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia Park has canceled racing through Jan. 28, saying the subzero temperatures have created safety problems.
