The Maryland Jockey Club provided the Maryland Racing Commission April 4 with an update on the recent dirt surface renovation project at Laurel Park and ongoing negotiations with the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association and Maryland Horse Breeders Association regarding a new racing agreement.

“We did fairly significant maintenance work,” MJC Acting President Mike Rogers said. “We scraped the cushion from the half-mile pole to the quarter-mile pole. The integrity of the base is extremely sound.”
