March 25, 1994|By Ross Peddicord | Ross Peddicord,Sun Staff Writer

A group of 18 jumpers, including a three-horse entry trained by Jack Fisher, has been entered to run in tomorrow's 50th running of the Howard County Hunt Cup.

The three Fisher horses include Revelstoke and Sea Speed, the second- and third-place finishers in the 1993 Maryland Hunt Cup, respectively, as well as Woody Boy Would, a former hurdler.

The three-mile race, contested over 18 timber fences, is the second of eight races carded for tomorrow's program. The Howard County-Iron Bridge Hounds meet is held at Meriwether Farm in Glenelg.

Maryland racing secretary Jack Mobberley said seven of the 18 horses are cross-entered in other timber events, including Revelstoke, who could start in the owner-rider heavyweight timber race with Fisher's brother, Rush, serving as jockey.

Mobberley said the Howard County Cup could be split into two divisions if 10 or more horses actually start.

In addition to the Fisher entry, the rest of the field includes: Amazing Haste (Mike Leaf, jockey), Joe's O.K. (John Bosley), Saratoga Slew (Bruce Fenwick), Body Music (Bruce Fenwick), Destination (Joe Gillet), Ballybranogue (Michael Traurig), Reputed Dancer (Brian Moran), Grape (Billy Meister), Kevino (Irvin Naylor), World Advocator (Louis Neilson III), The Milroy (Louis Neilson III), No Triskadekafobia (Billy Santoro), Shako (Billy Santoro), Fire Sale (Michele Rouse) and Florida Law (No rider).
