Mulcahy rallies in Emerald Derby


Mulcahy came from last in a field of six to win Monday's $100,000 Emerald Downs Derby by a length over Jamaica Bound, who got second by 1 1/4 lengths over the heavily favored Song of Pirates.

Mulcahy, a son of Tribunal from the barn of trainer Howard Belvoir, covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1:47.40 under rider Jennifer Whitaker. Though he was coming off an impressive win in the 1 1/16-mile Seattle Slew Handicap, Mulcahy was dismissed at better than 5-1 and paid $12.60 to win. He earned $55,000 for his owners, Howard Belvoir and Harley Hoppe.
