Day at the Races "Lite": Thoroughbred Horse Racing at Laurel Park

  • This location is shown only to members

Hello Ladies--

Back in November we held a well attended and received "Day at the Races" at Laurel Park in Laurel, MD. Since then I have received numerous inquiries as to when we would be going to the races again. So here you have it: Saturday February 15th is the Winter Carnival at Laurel. Admission, parking and the racing program are free. Racing includes several stakes races (the major leagues of horse racing). Other events/giveaways include: ice carvings throughout the track; an "Ice Wall" with $2,500 worth of prizes frozen inside; and a free Laurel canvas tote bag for the first 3,000 guests.

I refer to this as "Day at the Races Lite" because I am not conducting any tours or seminars this time...just a bunch of us getting together to enjoy the races. I will be reserving tables in the Terrace Room (the tracks restaurant on the 3rd floor) for those of you who would prefer to sit down and have a birds eye view of the races. You can also use your seat/table as base camp (i.e., a place to leave your things if you want to go to the rail or the paddock to see the horses up close as I often do). The event time is just a suggestion and reflects when the races begin and end. You may come and go as you please at any time during the day.

In your RSVP please let me know if you will be joining us in the Terrace Room so I can make a reservation. Looking forward to another fun Day at the Races.

    I'm relieved. I was thinking of canceling, I have a really hard time watching the horses run in bad conditions. Sort of hurts my soul

    Sorry meetup friends...Laurel closed today due to the weather. It is for the best...safety for the humans and horses is paramount! I will reschedule.

    Doesn't look like I will make it after all, to do list before going out of town is just too long. Thank you for hosting and maybe next time
