Laurel weekend


Today: Three stakes winners over Laurel's main surface are among eight colts and geldings entered for the Herat Stakes. The Herat, going as the ninth event on a 10-race card, is worth $50,000 in purse money and will be run at 1 1/16 miles. Harry and Tom Meyerhoff's Perfect Score will be one of the choices. The son of Personal Hope crashed the stakes ranks by winning the Bobby Hale last August at Timonium.

Tomorrow: Eight fillies, including Sandi Kleeman's entry of Po and Moon Child, have passed the entry box for the Landaura Stakes. Like the Herat, the Landaura is worth $50,000 and will be staged at 1 1/16 miles.

All of the 3-year-olds entered have stakes experience.

Super Skirt, based at Philadelphia Park, won Aqueduct's Busanda in the slop early this year and Po's most recent success came in the local mud when she captured the Belair Stakes.
