Race Winner

Maryland's Best has done it again! The University of Maryland bred colt born on the campus farm in 2014 has won his second race at Laurel Park on April 2nd bringing his earnings to $42,604.  Although the horse only sold for $1,000 as a weanling, the University of Maryland has earned nearly $10,000 in breeder's incentives as a result of Maryland's Best race performances. The program helps give students important hands-on skills in mare and foal care, training young horses, and preparing horses for sale. Three more University of Maryland bred Thoroughbreds are expected to start racing this summer.
