April 10, 1993|By Ross Peddicord | Ross Peddicord,Staff Writer

A field of nine jumpers is likely to start today in the 83rd running of My Lady's Manor Point-to-Point in Monkton.

Former Maryland-bred champion steeplechaser, Call Louis, is scheduled to run in the $15,000 race at three miles over 16 timber fences. It is the horse's first start after spending three years recuperating from a tendon injury. The former Virginia Gold Cup winner is ridden and trained by Jack Fisher, who won the Manor race last year with Push n Pull.

Other expected starters are Pennsylvania Hunt Cup winner Pleasant Sea; Sea Speed, winner of a division of the John Rush Streett Memorial at the Manor last year; Virginia Hunt Cup winner Heavenly Dance as well as Ninewa, Pacific Parley and a three-horse Nancy Knox-trained entry of Reputed Dancer, Ballybranogue and No Triskadekafobia.

Faraway Son is entered in the race, but could go instead in the Streett Memorial for maidens. Song of Songs is expected to scratch.

Post time for the feature race is 3:30 p.m. The Streett Memorial has been split into two divisions which will be run at 4:15 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The course is located on the corner of Jarrettsvile Pike and Pocock Road, 13.8 miles north of the Beltway off Exit 27B.

General admission is $25 per car and is payable at the gate.
