VIDEO: Politely 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 Politely Stakes for Maryland-bred fillies and mares Friday at Laurel Park.

That means another chance to see Fille d’Esprit in action. The Great Notion mare, a onetime $10,000 claim, has won four stakes this year including, last out, the Maryland Million Distaff. She has earned over $500,000 in her career.

Will this be her fifth stakes win of the season? She’ll have to contend with the speedy Paisley Singing, impressive last out winner Juror Number Four, quick turf runner Hollywood Walk and more. The Politely is carded as the eighth on a nine-race card, and John and Frank ‘cap the race.

Who gets it done?
