The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing



By Laurel Press Staff – The Maryland Jockey Club announced today that beginning Friday, July 17, jockeys who enter another racetrack’s jockey quarters will not be permitted to ride in Maryland unless they self-quarantine for 14 days and obtain a negative COVID-19 test.

            The health, safety and welfare of every person and every horse is always the top priority of the Maryland Jockey Club.

Jockeys outside the state of Maryland will not be allowed to work or gallop horses at Laurel Park or Pimlico Race Course.

            Racing at Laurel resumes Friday afternoon.
