National training champion Todd Pletcher will send Somethinaboutbetty to run against eight other Maryland-bred fillies and mares today in the 6 1/2 -furlong, $45,000 Alma North Stakes, the feature race at Timonium.
The Alma North features stakes winners and stakes place finishers, making this running one of the most competitive renewals in recent years. Timonium's other added money offering is the $45,000 Taking Risks Stakes, which is Monday.
Jonathan Joyce, last year's Timonium riding champion, will ride the 4-year-old daughter of Forestry.
Also entered is the talented 3-year-old, Laila's Punch, a winner of four of five starts including the Marshua and Smart Halo Stakes. She is coming off a five-month break.
The feature is the eighth race on today's nine-race program. First post is 1 p.m. Admission to the races is included with admission to the Maryland State Fair.
