Ramon Dominguez's Laurel Park homecoming party included time in the winner's circle, as he rode Harissa to victory in the $150,000, Grade II Barbara Fritchie Handicap for fillies and mares Saturday at Laurel Park. Harissa, down from Belmont Park from the stable of Michael Hushion, sped through the seven-furlong distance in 1:23.65, finishing 21/4 lengths in front of Aspenglow, ridden by Travis Dunkelberger. Fascinatin' Rhythm finished third. "I'd never ridden her before," said Dominguez, the 2010 Eclipse Award winner.

Today With racing shut down tomorrow in observance of Easter, Pimlico presents the $50,000 Primonetta Stakes today as the feature on an 11 race card. If the entry remains intact, Burning Daylight Farms provides trainer Ferris Allen with an excellent chance of finishing one-two in the six-furlong event for fillies and mares. Argentine-bred Passeggiata, presently the stronger half of Allen's coupling, is making her initial appearance at Old Hilltop. At Laurel, she put a string of four victories together, including the Francis Scott Key Stakes and Barbara Fritchie Handicap.

You couldn't miss Superduper Miss with her shocking-pink blinkers and jockey in shocking-pink silks. Sporting such garish apparel, this filly had better be good. She was. Superduper Miss toyed with seven other fillies and mares before registering a one-length victory in the $75,000 Stefanita Stakes yesterday at Laurel Park. As the 6-5 favorite, the flashy daughter of Robyn Dancer and Duper led at every call of the seven-furlong race. Atlantic Destiny, a 4-year-old filly racing for the first time on dirt, claimed second for trainer Jimmy Murphy.

Christopher Grove had been thinking about President's Day weekend for months. The Frederick trainer was confident that he had two horses -- Greenspring and Sweet Goodbye -- who could win a Grade II Stakes race, and so every move he made in the months prior to the holiday weekend was made with the Barbara Fritchie Handicap and the General George Handicap in mind. Then the snow tried to ruin everything. His horses couldn't train at his training center in Bowie, and he couldn't sleep.

The 13-year-old girl was shy around people, so it took all her courage to knock on her neighbor's door. She took a deep breath and asked the man whether she could care for his two horses, clean their stalls and feed them, in return for perhaps riding them once in a while. The man didn't hesitate. Sure, he said, the girl could do for free what he would have to pay someone else to do. And that is how Robin Graham started on a path that could lead her into the winner's circle tomorrow at Laurel Park in the biggest race of her life.
