Barbara Fritchie Attracts Nice Field

A bang-up edition of the Barbara Fritchie Handicap (gr.

All three will vie for favoritism in the seven-furlong main track test Feb. 14 at Laurel Park.

I).

I) July 5 in the mud at Belmont Park.

MAHUBAH'S CORNER, by Avalyn Hunter

An undefeated 2-year-old is the stuff of dreams, and at this time of year the dreams inspired often feature roses or lilies. By the Light, though not really tested, is from a family that has shown moments of brillance and so is one undefeated filly worth watching.
