If you caught the HBO preview of their new horse-racing centered Luck last night and enjoyed it as much as I did, you might want to look in our own back yard for a place to play the ponies. Laurel Park is just off I-95 north of the Beltway is just close enough to be intriguing to many and accessible, as well. Tomorrow afternoon, a horse named Rapid Redux goes for his record twenty-first straight victory. We asked former Thoroughbred Times reporter Ed DeRosa about Rapid Redux, and he said, “He’s a lower level horse so it’s more a blue-collar tale of consistency than a superstar deal. Drama every day though!”
Doors open tomorrow at 11:00am, admission is a scant $3, and post time is 12:35.
