Alwaysmining puttingstreak on line at Laurel

Runnymede Racing's Alwaysmining, a winner of three straight including back-to-back stakes, will look to continue his upward progression as the 7-5 program favorite in Saturday's $100,000 Miracle Wood at Laurel Park. The 1-mile Miracle Wood for 3-year-olds and the $100,000 Wide Country for 3-year-old fillies at 7 furlongs are among five stakes, two graded, worth $800,000 in purses on a 10-race Winter Carnival program that includes the $100,000 John B. Campbell presented by Fidelity First for older horses. Serving as Winter Carnival co-headliners are the 67th running of the $250,000 Barbara Fritchie (G3) for fillies and mares 4 and older and the 43rd renewal of the $250,000 General George (G3) for 4-year-olds and up, both at 7 furlongs. First race post time is 12:30 p.m. In addition to live racing, Saturday's program will include ice sculptures, an ice carving demonstration, an ice wall with $3,000 in prizes and Tech Glove giveaway with program purchase, while supplies last. ... Uriah St. Lewis owned-and-trained Discreet Lover, 45-1 upset winner of the Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) last fall, will open his 6-year-old campaign as the topweight and 3-1 program favorite for the John B. Campbell. Purchased for $10,000 by St. Lewis at Fasig-Tipton's 2015 Midlantic auction of 2-year-olds in training held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Discreet Lover is taking advantage of a Maryland Jockey Club policy initiated for 2019 waiving the entering and starting fees for any Grade 1 winner in the past 12 months that runs in an MJC stakes, excluding the 144th Preakness (G1) May 18 at Pimlico Race Course. Discreet Lover was last seen finishing eighth, beaten 7½ lengths by 2018 older male champion Accelerate, in the Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) Nov. 3. Though he has not had a published work since the race, the bay son of Repent has been training steadily at St. Lewis' Parx base for his return.
