The field parted and owner Howard M. Bender's Ghost Bay charged through, galloping to victory in the 7-furlong $125,000 Maryland Juvenile Futurity at Laurel Park. Soon after the start, Ghost Bay was shuffled to last in the field of 11 2-year olds. Jockey Forest Boyce chose to save ground with the son of Ghostzapper, then angled him off the rail as the field raced around the far turn. At the top of the stretch, they angled back in and were lucky enough to find a hole in the wall of horses that had stacked up before them. Ghost Bay charged through and reached the finish line in 1 minute, 24.73 seconds, 41/2 lengths ahead of Gin Fuzz, with Sunrise Sunset taking third. Ghost Bay had been winless in two starts entering the Juvenile Futurity, having finished third in two maiden tries at Laurel this fall. Boyce returned to Maryland this afternoon to keep the mount on the Larry Murray-trained horse. "I'm so happy Mr. Murray gave me the opportunity to ride this horse again," Boyce said. "I really didn't want to lose this mount. The way he ran today, he's so professional. When I asked him to go for it, he never hesitated. He will do anything you ask of him. He reminds me of some of the really good horses I've been on in my career with his professionalism."
