Rosalee C. Davison's homebred Here Us Roar hopes to extend her undefeated career tally to three in Saturday's $100,000 Selima Stakes at Pimlico.
Eight 2-year-old fillies, including six Maryland-breds, are entered in the 1 1/16-mile Selima.
A daughter of Lion Hearted
trained by Francis Campitelli, Here Us Roar broke her maiden by five lengths before rallying from 11 lengths back to post a narrow victory in the Maryland Million Lassie Stakes.
The Selima drew one other stakes winner, Jazzy J J, a daughter of Jambalaya Jazz
who defeated males in the Tri-State Futurity at Charles Town for owner Hickory Plains Farm and trainer Hamilton A. Smith.

1 -- Hear Us Roar, Luis Garcia
2 -- Take a Check, J. Z. Santana
3 -- Jazzy J J, Ryan Fogelsonger

5 -- Jill Robin L, Rafael Bejarano
6 -- Gotta Rush, J. C. Caraballa
