Horse racing: The Maryland Jockey Club is partnering with the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association in hosting an inaugural Community Day on July 23 at Laurel Park. Created to celebrate the backstretch community and its contribution to the continued success of Maryland racing, Community Day will be held from noon to 4 p.m. outside the track kitchen. Community Day will feature awards and signage presented for both best dorm and best barn housekeeping, as well as a barbecue, raffles, prizes and giveaways. Also part of the festivities are basketball, pool and volleyball tournaments, yard games, and a dunk tank. Proceeds from the dunk tank will go to benefit Beyond the Wire, Maryland’s Thoroughbred aftercare program.
