Horsemen, their employees, and other members of the backstretch community are encouraged to follow the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association and Maryland Jockey Club text message systems. Training schedules at Laurel Park could change on a daily basis and this will be the primary method of communication.
To receive texts from the MTHA simply text MTHA to 313131.
For the MJC, the number for the system has changed to 855-860-4664. Any new subscribers will have to text MJCRACING to the new number.
Text updates often are sent on a daily basis given the ongoing project to repair the dirt surface at Laurel and the shift of racing to Pimlico Race Course.
The MTHA is also scheduling regular community meetings via Zoom to provide the latest updates. Check your text messages and email for notifications of upcoming online meetings.
