Laurel Futurity Stakes

  (Redirected from Pimlico Futurity)

The Laurel Futurity is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually in late November at Laurel Park Racecourse in Laurel, Maryland. Run over a distance of ​1 116 miles on turf, at one time it was a Grade I stakes race on dirt, and one of the richest and most important races for two-year-old American thoroughbreds. When the race was moved from the dirt to the turf in 2005, it lost its graded status and was subsequently ineligible for grading in 2006.[1] The race was finally cancelled in 2008 for economic reasons.[2] It was announced by Laurel Park that the famed race would be restored in 2011 and run on October 8 at 6 furlongs.
