March 02, 1994|By From Staff Reports

LAUREL -- The late-striding Coringa overtook Portage Path in the stretch and drew off to a convincing 5 1/2 -length triumph in the General Holme Purse at Laurel Race Course yesterday.

Sent away the favorite, Coringa covered 1 1/16 miles in 1 minute, 44 2/5 seconds with Rick Wilson (who notched a two-win day) aboard. Trained by Carlos Garcia, Coringa paid $4.60, $2.80 and $2.40. The victory was the fifth in 29 career starts for Coringa; the Florida-bred has hit the board 14 times for earnings in excess of $100,000.

Johnny Rome rallied for second, worth $3 and $2.40. Portage Path finished third and paid $3.80.
