Laurel’s rescheduled De Francis Dash Day card featured seven stakes, the finale of the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Championship series, big fields and plenty of quality racing. Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens came in from California to ride several, while trainers Steve Asmussen, Tom Albertrani, Roger Attfield, Christophe Clement, David Donk, Jeremiah Englehart and others entered horses. The results included a 35-percent increase in handle over the same card in 2017 – to more than $5 million.
