Furlong Friday at Laurel

Thank goodness it is Furlong Friday. Today we take a look at a competitive contest for youngsters.

Laurel Park Race 8 {5 furlongs~2 year old~fillies~Claiming}
A wonderful field of nine juveniles will go to the gate in this claiming feature. There is plenty of speed to guarantee swift pace.  These youngsters are all fairly close in terms of their speed numbers and they all seem to be improving nicely. It should be superb race.

#9 Christmas Barn (Evans / Capuano) could take another step forward with the second highest (tie) last out speed number, a four race progression, and one bullet workout. This lad should be staying with the pace ready to deliver.
$2 SHOW.

#4 One Massive Cat (Ritvo / Pino) should challenge sharing the second highest last out speed number in his only start and putting in two superb peaking workouts. This guy could close down the field into an honest pace.
$2 SHOW.
