Belmont: Mott batting .400 on turf


  Bill Mott threw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium shortly after winning the Belmont Stakes with Drosselmeyer, but the Hall of Fame trainer has been getting most of his hits on the grass lately.

  Kiawah Cat (3rd, $3.90) was put on the lead by Kent Desormeaux, and responded when challenged to turn back Rcuandry in a second-level allowance at 1 1/4 miles on the inner course. The win by Kiawah Cat - her first in 13 months - upped Mott's meet record on turf to 10 for 25, a .400 batting average.
