Horse racing: Gary Barber and Team Valor International’s undefeated filly Citi Party likely earned herself a date with stakes company following her popular 7 ½-length romp in Thursday’s featured sixth race at Laurel Park. Ridden by Jorge Ruiz for trainer Mary Eppler, and favored at 1-5 in the field of seven, Citi Party ($2.40) ran 5 ½ furlongs in 1:03.75 over a fast main track to capture the entry-level allowance for Maryland-bred/sired fillies and mares 3 and up. Citi Party led all the way for her third consecutive victory, setting fractions of 22.37, 45.63 and 57.59 seconds. Initially pressed by Cowboy’s Plan and then eventual runner-up Questionoftheday, Citi Party took a four-length lead into the stretch and pulled clear through the lane.

Golf: Dominick Vennari of Baltimore birdied his first three holes, bogeyed the fourth, then held on the rest of the way Thursday for his fifth victory on the Minor League Golf Tour. At seven under par 64, Vennari edged Brant Peaper of nearby Tequesta by a stroke, making five birdies on his last 12 holes, at Nos. 7. 9, 10, 16 and 17. Peaper made three birdies on each nine, did not have a bogey but still, at 65, was a stroke short of his seventh MLGT win.

Men’s college volleyball: Stevenson had five players named to the All-Conference, which included first-team selection senior Landon Shorts, who was also named Player of the Year in the Middle Atlantic Conference for the second year in a row. Joining him on the first team is graduate student Christian Taylor and sophomore Nate Reynolds. Senior Jason Gardner and junior Derek Tangorra were both selected to the second team.

Women’s college basketball: Coppin State’s Brooke Fields has been named a BOXTOROW Second-Team All-American. A senior from Owings Mills, Fields was a First Team All-MEAC selection after leading Coppin with 17.0 points per game, 51 3-pointers and 119 assists.
