FORT WASHINGTON -- Die Laughing, who has the No. 1 post, is the 5-2 morning-line favorite over eight other 2-year-old pacers in tonight's $298,345 Presidential Stakes at Rosecroft Raceway.
Die Laughing won the Woodrow Wilson Pace at the Meadowlands this year, accounting for most of his $816,750 career earnings. He has won five of seven other starts, and generally is regarded as the nation's top juvenile pacer.
The colt warmed up for tonight's final with a victory in a Presidential preliminary at Rosecroft last week, winning in 1 minute, 54 2/5 seconds.
