A couple of fillies nearly took flight in a couple of features yesterday at Laurel Park. Swept Away, a Mystery Storm filly based in Kentucky, blew away a formidable field in the $100,000 Safely Kept Stakes, a Grade III six-furlong sprint for 3-year-old fillies. And Silent Valay, a 4-year-old Carnivalay filly based at Bowie, swept away challengers in the $50,000 Alma North Stakes, a 1 1/16-mile venture for females originally slated this summer at Timonium. It was rescheduled after a rainstorm forced the cancellation of Timonium races.

King Leatherbury ships Ameri Valay to New Jersey today to try to end the horse's reputation as a homebody.To help the trainer out, Mark Johnston is relinquishing 10 mounts on today's Pimlico Race Course card to ride Ameri Valay in the Grade III Salvator Mile at Monmouth Park. The horse drew the rail, which should give him a head start in beating the race's other front-runner, Northern Trend, to the lead. That horse drew the extreme outside post in the 11-horse field, which also includes Looming, another Maryland-bred.
