The Maryland Jockey Club announced today it will pay shipping expenses to Laurel for horsemen stabled at Parx throughout the month of August.
Parx is closed from August 10 through September 2.
The decision by the Maryland Jockey Club is designed to increase field size at renovated Laurel Park and provide more opportunity for mid-Atlantic horsemen, according to Maryland Jockey Club President and General Manager Sal Sinatra.
“We continue to rebuild Maryland racing by upgrading our facilities, growing our off-track betting network, and putting together competitive races with full fields,” Sinatra said. “We will continue working with horsemen throughout North America to card quality races on our main track and newly-renovated, world-class turf course throughout the entire year”
For more information, horsemen are asked to contact Georganne Hale at [email protected] or call 800.638.1859 or 443.506.6916.
