Schedule change: Laurel summer meet to begin June 2

Wednesday, April 19, 2023
Monday, May 1, 2023
The summer meet at Laurel Park will begin a week earlier than originally planned under a revised racing calendar agreed upon by the Maryland Jockey Club and Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association.
The earlier calendar had the Pimlico Race Course spring meet extended one week to include Friday, June 2, through Sunday, June 4. Those dates are normally held at Laurel, and that will be the case again this year.
The Pimlico meet will now be 12 days: May 11-14, May 18-20 (Preakness Stakes Day), and May 25-29 (Memorial Day).
The Laurel summer meet will begin Friday, June 2, with racing three days a week on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The current calendar extends through June 30, which marks the end of a six-month extension for negotiation of a new live racing agreement. Racing dates for July and subsequent months will be released when they are finalized.
