Lightning Forces Laurel Cancellation
Thursday, July 6, 2023
    LAUREL, MD – The balance of today’s 10-race program at Laurel Park was cancelled due to prolonged lightning in the area.

    Thunder and lightning were first reported approaching post time for the fourth race. Following a 30-minute delay, during which the main track was sealed and the rain began, steady lightning persisted and the decision was made to cancel out of safety concerns for Laurel’s horses, horsemen, fans and employees.

    The program was originally carded for June 30 but was postponed due to poor air quality stemming from wildfires in eastern Canada.


            Live action is scheduled to resume with a nine-race program Friday starting at 12:25 p.m. There will be carryovers of $16,427.18 in the 20-cent Rainbow 6 (Races 4-9) and $11,237.43 in the $1 Jackpot Super High Five (Race 6).
