Tarsky heads point-to-point's nine-horse field


Tarsky goes for his second straight win over the My Lady's Manor steeplechase course today when he heads a field of nine jumpers in the featured My Lady's Manor Point-to-Point at Monkton.

The 10-year-old gelding is one of three horses that local trainer Jack Fisher will have on the card. In addition to Tarsky, Fisher will start Sortov in the main race and Robber Landing in the first division of the split John Rush Streett Memorial.

Last year, Fisher, 31, swept all three Manor races with Shining Beacon, Tarsky and Navy Pilot. Tarsky broke his maiden in the Streett Memorial, but will face tougher competition this year in the feature.

The opposition includes 1993 Maryland Hunt Cup winner Ivory Poacher; Howard County Cup winner Welter Weight; 1991 Timber Horse of the Year Gus's Boy; 1993 Virginia Gold Cup winner Kuujjuaq, and Summit Point, recent winner of the Rokeby Bowl at the Piedmont (Va.) Point-to-Point.

Post time for today's first of three races will be 3:30 p.m. The course is about 14 miles north of Beltway Exit 27B, Dulaney Valley Road.
