Digest (Nov. 23): Wise Gal to take a crack at Laurel Park race on dirt track

Eric J. Wirth homebred Wise Gal, already a stakes winner on turf, will test dirt for the first time as the horse to beat in Saturday's $50,000 Donna Freyer Stakes at Laurel Park. The Donna Freyer for 2-year-old fillies and the $50,000 Christopher Elser Memorial for 2-year-olds, both at six furlongs, are carded fifth and seventh, respectively, on a nine-race program that begins with a 12:30 p.m. first post. Wise Gal is the lone two-time winner in the nine-horse field, both her victories coming over Laurel's world-class turf course this summer. She also romped to a 4¼-length score in the 6-furlong Selima Sept. 16 for Laurel-based trainer Dove Houghton. ... Facing a field where seven of his 10 rivals are maidens and only one other has faced stakes company, The Elkstone Group's stakes-placed homebred Kitchen Fire takes two wins and the benefit of experience into the $50,000 Christopher Elser Memorial. Based at Pimlico Race Course with trainer Ron Potts Jr., Kitchen Fire will carry highweight of 120 pounds including jockey Ricardo Chiappe from Post 9 in his second straight dirt race after making his first five starts over the synthetic surface at Presque Isle Downs this summer and fall. ... No single bettor was able to solve the 20-cent Rainbow 6 wager creating a $5,171.78 jackpot carryover for today's 10-race program. First race post time is 12:30 p.m. ... Jockey Elvis Trujillo rode his first two winners since moving his tack to Maryland earlier this month, finishing first with Correjon ($33.60) in the third race and Ogeechee ($8.60) in the sixth.

Men's college basketball: Joe Sherburne made five 3-pointers and scored 19 points, Arkel Lamar hit all five of his 3s and scored 17, and host UMBC earned a 84-73 win over Chicago State (2-5) on Thursday. The Retrievers (2-3) were 14 of 30 from 3-point range. Jairus Lyles added two 3-pointers and 13 points for UMBC.
