Horsemen protocols for Maryland Million announced

(Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association Release)

The Maryland Jockey Club has released the following protocols for the upcoming Maryland Million Oct. 22 at Laurel Park.
Horses stabled at Laurel, Pimlico Race Course and Fair Hill Training Center will be receiving training towels that must be worn beginning Thursday, Oct. 20.
Horses stabled at a racetrack other than Laurel, Pimlico, and Fair Hill must let the entry clerk know the track at which the horse is stabled and will have a time set up with a regulatory veterinarian at that track to observe the horse.
Horses stabled at a farm must have their private veterinarian send Dr. Dionne Benson (This email address is being protected from spambots.
