Jockey Trevor McCarthy, approaching his 1,000th career victory, and trainers Linda Rice and Kieron Magee were each crowned meet champions on the closing day of Laurel Park's 56-day winter-spring stand. McCarthy, who turns 23 on May 16, finished with an 12-win advantage over runner-up Horacio Karamanos, 67-56, to earn his sixth individual meet title in Maryland, where he ended the year with the most victories in 2014 and 2016. Four of McCarthy's championships have come at Laurel Park including last year's winter-spring meet. McCarthy, who rode out of town on Saturday, picked up his lone victory Sunday on Miss Swisher ($7.40) in the eighth, allowing Magee to tie Rice for leading trainer at 27 wins apiece.

Ravens well-represented at Pawject Runway fundraiser

Ten Ravens, and two former players, were among the "models" participating in Saturday's 5th annual Pawject Runway, a fundraiser for the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, at Royal Farms Arena. Athletes and other local celebrities walked rescued dogs and cats, dressed in tutus and other outfits (the pets, not the people) onto the stage in an hour-long show. All animals were adoptable on the spot. Those Ravens taking part included Ronnie Stanley, Alex Lewis, Ryan Jensen, Chris Moore, Carl Davis, Willie Henry, Maxx Williams, Albert McClellan, Bronson Kaufusi and Matt Judon. Former Baltimore standouts Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles) and Lawrence Guy (New England Patriots) also participated. Both Stanley, the Ravens' No. 1 draft pick in 2016, and Jensen have themselves adopted dogs from BARCS.
