LAUREL -- Luramore splashed to the first stakes win of her young career on a dreary afternoon at Laurel Race Course yesterday.The filly's victory in the $43,500 Marshua Stakes came some three hours after a spill that sent jockey Joe Rocco to the hospital and forced his mount, Old Witch, to be destroyed.Luramore, trained by Ben Perkins Jr., sped to the early lead on a track made sloppy by daylong rain. After pulling away from Willed and Anacreontic in the early stretch, she finished nearly two lengths ahead of Gala Prospector, the 3-2 favorite in a field of seven 3-year-old fillies.

BEST PICK -- (11th) Tangi's Squaw. If quickness is the name of the game, Tangi's Squaw plays it right. Reclaimed by Mike Pino two starts back, she tired when raised to the $16,000 level; she drops back to $6,500 today, looks like the only quality speed and should be very tough to catch. If she falters, Betty Loving or Real Irish could inherit the front.FEATURE PICK -- (10th) Leehawk. There is no standout in the Marshua Stakes for 3-year-olds, although as many as six of the nine starters appear to have solid chances.
