Laurel weekend

March 18, 2000|By Bob Pickering

Today: Perfect to a Tee, which ended a four-race win streak in the H.E. Johnson Memorial Stakes last month, seeks to come back in the sixth running of the St. Brendan Stakes. The St. Brendan, at 1 1/8 miles for 4-year-olds and up, is worth $75,000. Perfect to a Tee had been installed as the favorite in the Johnson Memorial, but a wide trip eliminated the old-timer during the early stages. The St. Brendan has also lured the first three finishers of the Johnson -- S W Clarence, Thunder Flash and Sly Joe. Leave It to Beezer, Mary's Buckaroo, Salty Note and Testafly complete the lineup.

Tomorrow: Rangeley Lady, who began a four-race win streak in a $25,000 claiming race here last December, is the likely favorite for the 32nd running of the Conniver Stakes. Only five mares and a filly, all Maryland-breds, will line up for the 7-furlong dash, which carries a $60,000 purse. After putting together back-to-back victories, Rangeley Lady was entered in the Toes Knows Stakes and upset a dozen distaffers with an off-the-pace rally. She also won her next outing, an allowance test, but had to settle for second in her most recent start. Northern Mist is the only last-time winner in the field. Others entered are Potomac Bend, Carnival Court, Vanna Go and Shashobegon.
