Pimlico: Grundlefoot scores


Grundlefoot ($5) blew past even-money favorite Private Ryan, the early pacesetter, with a quarter-mile remaining and held off a late charge by Lyracist to prevail by three-quarters of a length in the $100,000 Baltimore Breeders' Cup Handicap at Pimlico. Private Ryan finished third.

The 5-year-old Grundlefoot, trained by Gary Capuano, is now

4 for 8 lifetime at Pimlico. He covered 1 1/8 miles over a fast track in 1:49.65.
