Saturday's 8th race (3:55pm EST) at Laurel Park is the $125k Nellie Morse Stakes for fillies and mares 4-year-old & up, going 1 1/16 miles. A field of 10 (with 2 AE's) is scheduled to go postward, and with #1 - Moon Philly the 9-5 M/L favorite. This is a great betting race.

#10 Ciguaraya (5-1) has been quite the traveler her 12 race career, making stops at 7 different tracks. Laurel Park will be her 8th. This 4-year-old competes well in these minor stakes races. She's usually quick from the gate but stumbled in her last outing (Dec. 15th @ Aqu) and appeared to never have gotten on track.

Since that (Dec. 15th) race, she's turned in 2 bullet works. With the recent sub-freezing weather in the area, the Laurel Park oval should be hard and speed favoring. Others to consider if you play exotics are #1 - Moon Philly (9-5) and #8 - Tanivan (5-1).

The Play: $10 WIN #10, $20 PLACE #10 and $2 Ex Box 1-8-10
