Horse racing: Matt Schera's John Jones, back to his multiple stakes-winning form to end an abbreviated 2017 campaign, will attempt to carry that momentum into the new year in Saturday's $100,000 Native Dancer at Laurel Park. The 50th running of the Native Dancer for 4-year-olds and up and the 35th running of the Nellie Morse for fillies and mares 4 and older, both run around two turns at about 11/16 miles, are among four $100,000 stakes on the 10-race program. Also on the card are the seven-furlong Frank J. Whiteley for 3-year-olds and six-furlong Marshua for 3-year-old fillies. ... Katherine Ball's homebred Julerette, a winner of three straight races, will make her Maryland debut as the 2-1 program favorite in the $100,000 Nellie Morse. Trained by Kentucky-based Ben Colebrook, Julerette spent last winter in South Florida where she was winless in three starts for trainer David Fawkes including her most recent stakes attempt, the seven-furlong White Pearl, last February.
