Laurel Park is switching to a new racing schedule that includes live racing on Mondays. By adding Mondays, Laurel will become the primary focus on the TVG Network, which will broadcast each race live that day. Racing had originally been scheduled to move to a four-day week, Thursday through Sunday, for October and November before returning to a three-day week, Friday through Sunday, in December. Instead, Laurel will operate from Friday through Monday, starting Friday, Oct. 6, with the first Monday card set for Oct. 9. The final Monday program will be conducted Dec. 18. First-race post time will remain at 1:10 p.m. through Oct. 16 before switching to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 20 through Dec. 31, closing day of the year-ending fall meet that began Sept. 8. Laurel's main track was refurbished during the break between the end of the summer meet Aug. 20 and the start of the fall stand.
