Horse races canceled at Laurel Park because of snowstorm

Scheduled horse racing at Laurel Park was canceled Saturday for the third day in a row because of inclement weather, Maryland Racing officials said.

The $300,000 Barbara Fritchie Handicap and $100,000 John Campbell Handicap have been rescheduled for next Saturday, Feb. 22. Live racing is also scheduled to start again Monday at 12:35 p.m. That 10-race card will feature the $250,000 General George Handicap and the $100,000 Maryland Racing Media Stakes.

Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course will be open for simulcasting on Saturday, however. The races were canceled due to the "powerful snow" that hit the region on Thursday, officials said.
