Don't expect trainer Jenn Patterson to be overwhelmed Saturday when she sends out her first horse of the year, first in a stakes and just the 18th in a fledgling career, in one of the marquee races on the richest day of Laurel Park 's winter season. As a former assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Shug McGaughey and the exercise rider and travel partner for 2013 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Orb during his Triple Crown run, which included a stop at Pimlico Race Course for the Preakness (G1), the 38-year-old Patterson is no stranger to being on the big stage. A native of Wilmington, Del., Patterson finds herself back in Maryland with Harry Rosenblum and Robert LaPenta's Grade 3-placed stakes winner Uncontested for the 43rd running of the $250,000 General George (G3) Saturday. The General George for 4-year-olds and up and the $250,000 Barbara Fritchie (G3) for fillies and mares 4 and older, both at seven furlongs, co-headline a Winter Carnival program featuring five stakes worth $800,000 in purses. It will be the second start for Uncontested since joining Patterson's modest seven-horse string at Keeneland-owned The Thoroughbred Center in Lexington, Ky. last fall.
