Saturday's Best Bet: Alwaysinahurry rushes to the front in Nursery

Saturday’s 7th race from Laurel Park is the $100,000 Maryland Million Nursery for 2-year-olds dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 2:39 p.m. ET).

#4 ALWAYSINAHURRY (6-1) turned back, dropped in class, and was aggressively handled in a sharp front running maiden win at this distance at Delaware Park Sept. 30. He really seemed to turn the corner last time and might be the one to catch.

#6 Moochie (6-1) smartly went all the way in her dirt sprint bow at Monmouth Park, and the 2-3 finishers were next-out winners. She acted up in the post parade and in the gate in the Colleen Stakes on turf last time, and she never got involved that day. She is back on the main track and should attend the pace.

#7 Sky’s Not Falling (3-1) finished in the top three in all five starts including four straight placings in the stakes ranks. He adds blinkers and should be rallying from off the pace.

#3 Reassured (15-1) rallied to finish a clear 2nd in his course/distance bow Sept. 12. Brittany Russell is strong with second timers and with juveniles in general, and he could easily move forward on the speed figure scale.

Exacta 3-4-6/7
