Weekend at Laurel

January 15, 2000|By Bob Pickering


Post Time 96 Stable's Never Wink is the lone stakes winner in a field of 10 entered for the seventh running of the Horatius Stakes. Never Wink, a 3-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Glitterman is the likely choice for the $50,000 event to be contested over 7 furlongs. Rick Wilson, who booted the colt to a two-length victory in the Ambernash Stakes, will be aboard again.


The Toes Knows Stakes, a $50,000 dash that will be contested over 5 1/2 furlongs, has attracted 15 fillies and mares who have never won an added-money event.

Merry Princess, unbeaten in three starts, could wind up in the role of favorite. The daughter of Polish Numbers, trained by Kathleen Demasi, won her first two starts on the turf at Atlantic City and Pimlico last spring and didn't start again until December at Philadelphia Park. Rhoda Elaine, runner-up in the Squan Song and Sentimentalromance, and place finisher in Timonium's Winning Colors Stakes, is likely to receive moderate backing.
