11/8/17

On Nov. 11, Laurel Park will host a day of tribute to fan-favorite Ben's Cat, one of the greatest thoroughbreds to flash across a finish line. But there will also be six stakes races worth $575,000 in purses on an 11-race program.

Two of those stakes races will carry $100,000 purses each, the City of Laurel (for 3-year-olds) and the Safely Kept (for 3-year-old fillies). Both races are seven furlongs.

The $100,000 City of Laurel is scheduled to have a field of nine 3-year-olds led by El Areeb. El Areeb last raced in the Gotham Stakes March 4 and finished third, but he was derailed from taking a run at the Triple Crown races by a minor knee injury suffered in late March while training for the Wood Memorial.
