A pair of stakes races for fillies and mares highlight the weekend at Pimlico. Post time both days is 1:05 p.m.
Today, seven fillies and mares will run 1 1/16 miles in the $40,000 Heartlight No. One Stakes, with April in Calgary as the 3-1 favorite. The Allen Iwinski-trained filly has been in the money 17 times in 26 career starts.
Tomorrow in the $40,000 Arctic Cloud Stakes, nine 3-year-old fillies will run six furlongs. Xtra Heat, the John Salzman-trained star who has won 12 of 14 starts, is the 8-5 favorite. Ridden by Rick Wilson, she has won three graded stakes and lost a fourth by a nose.
A formidable field will challenge, including Harmony Lodge (3-1), a Todd Pletcher-trained filly who will be ridden by Ramon Dominguez, Pimlico's top jockey.
