Sportsman's: Wired to Fly hangs on


Wired to Fly repelled a challenge from two rivals in the stretch to capture the $100,000 Cicero Handicap for fillies and mares at Sportsman's Park in Cicero, Ill.

Longshot Adam's Time, last at the top of the stretch, fell a head short of the winner. Hattiesburg, the 6-5 favorite, closed for third, beaten less than a length. The winning time for six furlongs over a fast track was 1:12.52.

The Cicero was the fifth win in 22 starts for Wired to Fly ($12.20), whose career earnings now exceed $384,000. She is trained by Allen Iwinski and was ridden in the Cicero by Alfredo Juarez Jr.
