Racing at Laurel Park ceases today and won't return until October. At least that's the plan of the Maryland Jockey Club and its parent company, Magna Entertainment Corp. Pimlico Race Course opens its spring meet Wednesday and runs through June 6. About then, Laurel will be closed and its horses relocated so that workers can rebuild the dirt and turf tracks, says Lou Raffetto Jr., MJC chief operating officer. Plans call for completely new surfaces. The 75-foot-wide dirt track will be expanded to 100 feet, and the 75-foot turf course will be widened to 150 feet, Raffetto says.

ARCADIA, Calif. --- Michael Gill is the leading owner in the country by wins (354) and earnings ($7,634,424). Owner of a mortgage company in New Hampshire, he dominates Maryland racing with large strings at Laurel Park and the Bowie Training Center. Now, the brash Gill hopes his 2-year-old filly, Forest Music, will bring him what he covets - an Eclipse Award. After her sensational debut Oct. 8 at Laurel Park, she will be a long shot in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies today at Santa Anita Park.
