VIDEO: Bender Memorial Stakes preview

Frank Vespe of The Racing Biz and John Piassek of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association team up for this video preview of the Howard and Sondra Bender Memorial Stakes for Maryland-breds Friday at Laurel Park.

The star of the show most likely will be Whereshetoldmetogo. The El Padrino gelding is a 17-time winner in his career and right on the cusp of $1 million in career earnings. Will he get it?

He’ll have to contend with stalwarts like Maryland Million Sprint show horse and 2021 Concern Stakes winner Alwaysinahurry, the improving closer One Ten, the speedy Twisted Ride, and graded stakes-placed Monday Morning Qb.

Who gets it done?
