Laurel weekend

December 12, 1998

Today: A stellar field of sprinters is lined up for the $50,000-added Bowie Stakes at six furlongs. Purple Passion, who has been beaten only in last year's General George while running at Laurel, is the likely favorite, with argument from the likes of Stormy Atlantic, Viv and Jove Stone.

Tomorrow: The equivalent race -- for older females -- is the $50,000-added Contrary Rose Stakes. Top-weighted at 122 pounds, the horse to beat is the overachieving Weather Vane. Turf specialist Incredible Revenge returns from a short vacation.
