Delaware Park: Pilfer holds on


Pilfer upset the $100,600 Go for Wand stakes at Delaware Park, taking charge from the odds-on pacesetter, Speedy Falcon, at the top of the stretch and then holding off a late challenge from Hopelessly Devoted to win by a half-length.

From Away put in a mild rally to wind up third, five lengths behind Hopelessly Devoted and 1 1/4 lengths in front of Speedy Falcon in fourth. Pilfer ($19.60), trained by John Servis and ridden by Jose Caraballo, covered the distance in 1:46.66 over a fast track.
