Geririg posts upset


Geririg's proven distance ability held him in good stead here as the 7-year-old gelding posted a mild upset in the $45,000 Wildcat Handicap at Turf Paradise. Geririg bided his time early in the 1 3/8-mile turf event, steadily advanced to the far turn, swung wide into the lane, and finished strongly to beat heavy favorite In Joe's Honor by a half-length. Geririg covered the distance in 2:18.34 and paid $14.40.
