`Uppermost' takes win at Pimlico


Search Star Stable Inc.'s Uppermost Inmymind burned a path up the rail, out-stepped five filly and mare rivals and then held on under vigorous urging to win the $40,000 Jacob France Stakes yesterday at Pimlico.

The 4-year-old Uppermost Inmymind covered the 5 1/2 furlongs in 1 minute, 5 1/5 seconds. She and rider Rick Wilson finished a neck in front of a very game Angelica Jean. The odds-on favorite Princess Franny finished third.

The winner returned $9.80 and was the top half of a $58.40, 1-6 exacta. The 1-6-2 trifecta paid $120.60.

Jockey Wilson said: "We anticipated being second or third going down the backside, right behind the pace, but this filly left the latch running today and next thing I knew I was on the front end. She was running easily so I just decided to stay there."
