Wiggins wiggles past Greater Good


LOUISVILLE - Wiggins grabbed the lead at the top of the stretch and cruised to a 21/2-length victory in the $58,900 featured allowance race for 3-year-olds and up at Churchill Downs yesterday.

The 6-year-old gelding, with Rafael Bejarano aboard, covered the 11/16 miles on a fast track in 1:42.41 to beat Greater Good for the 14th time in 31 career starts.

Trainer Dale Romans said Wiggins will most likely run in the $750,000-added Stephen Foster Handicap on June 17.
