Today In C C's Honor, a $75,000 claim by the E and G Stables last November, will face a half-dozen other added-money winners in the 10th running of the Northern Wolf Stakes. The Scott Lake-trained gelding is the defending champion of this $50,000 event. After the son of Allen's Prospects was haltered from his fourth victory of the year, he went on to win the Lite the Fuse Stakes in his next start. His chief opposition and likely favorite for the 6 1/2 -furlong dash is Grade III stakes winner Disco Rico.

TodaySilent Valay, winner of the Heavenly Cause Stakes here earlier in the meeting, takes on eight other Maryland-bred fillies in the Jameela Stakes. The six-furlong event, which carries a $60,000 purse, has lured several stakes-placed 3-year-olds as well as a pair of home-breds which won their debuts impressively. Potomac Bend, from the stable of Vincent Blengs, won her debut by seven lengths after breaking from the No. 1 post. Mark Johnston, aboard in the victory labeled "handily" by the official trackman, will ride the daughter of Polish Numbers again.
