Pimlico: Yankee Wildcat scores mild upset

Email

Yankee Wildcat, the 9-2 third choice, prompted the pace outside 2-1 favorite Procreate, caught him in deep stretch, and ran off to a 1 1/4-length victory in the $50,000 Mister Diz for Maryland-breds at Pimlico.

Yankee Wildcat ran the five furlongs on turf in 56.87 seconds under jockey Enrique Jurado and paid $11.

Procreate set all the pace and gave way near the sixteenth pole. Spring Kitten, 22-1, raced along the rail in an even effort to finish third in the field of eight.
