MJC's Chuckas Plans To Initiate Talks On Triple Crown Schedule

Maryland Jockey Club President & COO Tom Chuckas on Friday said that he "will initiate discussions with Churchill Downs and Belmont Park about changing the schedule of the Triple Crown races to allow for more time between races." Chuckas said that he will "approach the talks with a new twist – that the races on the undercards of the Triple Crown contests also would benefit from the change." Changing the date of the Kentucky Derby is "highly unlikely, so any change to the schedule would have to be worked out" between Pimlico and NYRA (DRF.com, 5/16).
