LAUREL -- Lake Shore bided his time until the quarter-pole, then swung out and swept to victory in yesterday's $16,500 Laurel Race Course feature.
Ridden by Gregg McCarron and trained by Hall of Famer Henry Clark, Lake Shore paid $8 to win as second choice in a field of eight allowance sprinters.
The race was just the second for Lake Shore since returning from a layoff of nearly five months.
Lake Shore, a 3-year-old son of Carnivalay, completed seven furlongs in 1 minute, 24 4/5 seconds on a fast track. He won by 3 1/4 lengths over Weather Rail, with Don Pilafidis two lengths back in third.
