More Laurel Park: For a horse that never been two turns before, Runnymede Racing's Alwaysmining made it look easy in extending his win streak to five races, the last four in stakes, with a front-running 6 ¾-length romp in Saturday's $100,000 Private Terms at Laurel Park. The 30th running of the Private Terms for 3-year-olds at about 11/16 miles was the third of five stakes worth $450,000 in purses on an 11-race St. Patrick's Day eve program. It serves as a prep for the $125,000 Federico Tesio on April 20, a "Win-and-In" event for Triple Crown-nominated horses like Alwaysmining to the 144th Preakness Stakes (G1) May 18 at legendary Pimlico Race Course. "That's what we were hoping we'd see," winning trainer Kelly Rubley said, after Alwaysmining ($3) coasted to the wire in 1:42.65 over a fast main track under a hand ride from regular pilot Daniel Centeno. "He looks like he's galloping, just relaxed. He's a very classy horse." Alwaysmining is a gelded son of Stay Thirsty, winner of the 1¼-mile Travers (G1) as a 3-year-old in 2011. He won the Maryland Juvenile Futurity and Heft Stakes, both at 7 furlongs, to cap his 2-year-old season, and opened 2019 with a victory in the 1-mile Miracle Wood Feb. 16. ... Hillwood Stable's Cordmaker, stretching out around two turns for the first time in his 11th career start, took a short lead at the top of the stretch and turned back favored Unbridled Juan through the lane for a 1½-length victory in Saturday's $100,000 Harrison E. Johnson Memorial at Laurel Park. With Victor Carrasco up for trainer Rodney Jenkins, Cordmaker ($10.80) covered the distance in 1:50.29 over a fast main track for his second career stakes win and first in open company, after capturing the one-mile Jennings Dec. 29 against fellow Maryland-breds.
