    Juvenile races at Laurel draw large fields
    Big fields are entered in stakes for 2-year olds Friday and Saturday at Laurel Park: the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship and the Maryland Juvenile Futurity. Thirteen fillies go in Friday's race and 12 colts and geldings are listed in Saturday's Futurity. Both races are 7 furlongs on the main track. The Juvenile Filly is headed by Miss Bullistic. She is 3-for-6 lifetime with two stakes victories, the Selima at Laurel and the Freyer at Parx Racing. The favorite is trained by Hamilton Smith and will be ridden by Jevian Toledo. Other contenders include maiden winner Miss Everything (4-1), stakes winner Pret Say Eye (5-1), maiden Candida H. (6-1) and four time winner Mo Bagels (6-1). Stonebriar is the 8-5 favorite in Saturday's Futurity. Although he is winless in five starts, the Tim Keefe trainee finished third in the Maryland Million Nursery and second in the Elsner Memorial Stakes at Parx. The Elsner Stakes earned him a Daily Racing Form comment of "gamely to the end." Sheldon Russell retains the mount. Others readying for the Futurity are maiden Ghost Bay (7-2) and maiden winners All I Karabout (6-1) and Takeachance On Me (10-1).
