Thistledown: Two for Feliciano team


Pyrite Springs completed a stakes double on the Ohio Derby Day card for trainer Miguel Feliciano and his nephew, jockey Ricardo Feliciano, holding off Ready for Roses to win the $75,000 Cleveland Gold Cup by a neck. Bug Hunter rallied for third, another neck back in the field of 14 Ohio-bred 3-year-olds.

Pyrite Springs ($20) ran the 1 1/8 miles in 1:53.84. Earlier in the day, the Felicianos won the Isi Newborn Memorial Stakes with Bernie Blue.
