The Thanksgiving Day card is a Laurel Park tradition, and, as the Clash might have said, they really pack ’em in.

Part of it’s the free pie, no doubt, and part of it’s the chance to get out to do something fun early on Thanksgiving.  Some questions for the day:

  • Can Jamie Ness get win number 2,000 of his career?  He needs one win, and he has four in at Laurel on Thursday.
  • Will we see anything exciting in the 7th, a maiden special weight for two year-olds?  Among the intriguing questions: how’d Korea-bred Angel’s Wing end up here?  Can pricey Jonathan Sheppard trainee Curve of Stones hit the ground running?  And what does it tell us about firster Malibu Moon colt Lawmaker that Chad Brown ships down from Belmont for his debut?
  • Will someone relieve Rudy Rodriguez of Maryland-bred Regal Warrior?  Rodriguez has turned the place horse in the 2012 Maryland Million Classic — an earner of nearly $300,000 — into a nickel claimer in five short races.
  • Apple or Pumpkin?

Good luck – and happy Thanksgiving to all!
