Digest (Feb. 15): 66th running of Barbara Fritchie stakes highlights Winter Carnival

Cash is King and Jim Reichenberg's Ms Locust Point, already a stakes winner in each of her three local starts, puts that streak on the line as she goes after her first graded triumph in Saturday's $300,000 Barbara Fritchie (Grade 2) at Laurel Park . The 66th running of the Barbara Fritchie for fillies and mares 3 and older and the 42nd renewal of the $250,000 General George (G3) for 3-year-olds and up, both at 7 furlongs, highlight a 11-race Winter Carnival program featuring six stakes worth $950,000 in purses. Sharing the spotlight on the Laurel Park card Saturday are the $100,000 Miracle Wood for 3-year-olds at 1 mile and the $100,000 Wide Country for 3-year-old fillies at 7 furlongs, joined by the $100,000 John B. Campbell for 4-year-olds and up going 11/8 miles and the $100,000 Maryland Racing Media for fillies and mares 4 and older at 11/16 miles. Trainer Lacey Gaudet will saddle the undefeated 3-year-old Dynamic Asset in the Miracle Wood. A Kentucky-bred son of Astrology, Dynamic Asset broke his maiden at Laurel in July over a sloppy track and then came back to win an optional claimer in September. The colt will be making his first start in five months in the Miracle Wood. Jacks or Better Farm's Awesome Banner is scheduled to face nine rivals in the $250,000 General George (G3) with an opportunity to join the thoroughbred millionaire's club with a victory in the 6-furlong sprint. BB Horses' Afleet Willy is chasing his fourth stakes victory in five starts in the $100,000 John B. Campbell.
