BALTIMORE, OCT. 15 -- The Maryland Racing Commission has authorized Laurel Race Course to make up as many as 30 races during its fall meeting, but track president Frank De Francis today said no plans have been made to supplement daily programs.

"We had 30 races canceled {by snow in early 1987}, and all we asked for was the right to make them up by running extra races," De Francis said. "Basically, we wanted to put those races in the bank in case we have an option to use them.

"I don't even know if I'm going to make up one of them, let alone 30. But there are times when we might consider it; let's say we have a stakes-race card with some short fields, or on a holiday, like Thanksgiving, when it would be no problem to put on an extra race. But we have no specific plans."

Laurel's meeting begins Sunday and runs through March 22, 1988, but races would have to be made up by year's end. Post time will be 12:30 p.m.

The Polish colt Omen is expected to arrive at Laurel Friday in preparation for the Oct. 31 Washington, D.C. International.

A 3-year-old, Omen hasn't finished worse than second in 12 career starts, winning nine. He took the 1 5/8-mile Warsaw Sluzewiec in his last race, Sunday.

Omen will be accompanied by trainer Andrazej Walicki, who sent Korab to an eighth-place finish in last year's International.

The Soviet horses who arrived at Laurel Sunday, Gjatsk and Star, galloped over the turf course twice Wednesday and today. Trainer Nikolai Nasibov has said Gjatsk probably will run in the International; Star may be used as an alternate, or could start in a different race.

Although Nasibov said through an interpreter that neither Gjatsk nor Star had raced on turf, the Daily Racing Form's past performances showed that Star finished third in a seven-furlong grass race in Czechoslovakia in August 1986. Omen was second in the race, 4 1/2 lengths before Star.

There are two days remaining in Pimlico's meeting, but the jockey and trainer titles have long been decided. Kent Desormeaux today rode his 100th winner -- 58 more than second-place Donald Miller Jr. -- guiding favored Limited Practice to an easy victory in the $18,000, five-furlong allowance feature.

Trainer King Leatherbury has 42 winners, 13 ahead of Ron Alfano.
