On Saturday at Laurel Park, the stakes action will continue with the $100,000 Marylander Stakes. Restricted to two-year-olds, the race will be contested at seven furlongs on the main track and has drawn a field of seven colts and geldings.

Never Gone South tops the field as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-5 for trainer Cathal Lynch. Purchased for $90,000 earlier in the year, the bay son of Munnings has won two of his three starts. After breaking his maiden in his career debut, he wheeled back to win the Strike Your Colors Stakes at Delaware Park. He was second last time out in a minor stakes race at Laurel and will break from post position four under jockey Trevor McCarthy.

Stakes debut for sharp winner Vorticity

Second choice at morning line odds of 8-5 is Vorticity for trainer James Lawrence, II. A dark bay son of Distorted Humor, he has been on the board in both career starts and will be stepping up to stakes competition for the first time after breaking his maiden. He finished third in his career debut and last time out broke through and earned his first victory. Victor Carrasco will be in the irons and they will break from post two.

Runningfromthefeds looking for third straight win

Also in the field at morning line odds of 9-2 is Runningfromthefeds for trainer Leo Rodriguez who also bred the chestnut son of Three Hour Nap. He has been on the board in all four starts and has two victories to his credit. He will be making his first start against stakes company and comes into this race off of consecutive wins, one in a maiden race and one against optional claiming competition. Alex Canchari will be aboard from the outside post.
