    Spotted Heart wins $125,000 Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship at Laurel Park

She crossed the finish line in 1 minute, 25.63 seconds, 11/4 lengths ahead of program favorite Miss Bullistic. Everything Lovely finished third. A 23-1 long shot, Spotted Heart paid $49.40. "We were in great position, then we went from great position to a little tight," Russell said. "Mark told me to try to get her in the clear at the top of the stretch. For a while it didn't look as if I would be able to as several of the horses were getting tired and drifting out. There were horses that were faster than her, so we really needed good position to win it."
