Rick Wilson scores 2,990th victory


Arugula furnished jockey Rick Wilson with his 2,990th victory in the $23,000 Oh Say Purse yesterday at Pimlico Race Course.

Leading jockey Edgar Prado was unseated from his mount, Dontcloseyoureyes, at the start and was released from the track's first-aid station after examination.

* Samuel H. Rogers Jr.'s Grab the Green, one of six turf winners at Pimlico this spring for trainer Barclay Tagg, will shoot for her first stakes victory today in the 19th running of the $57,600 Hilltop Stakes.

* Tomorrow's Pimlico/Laurel simulcast will be the $150,000 Chicago Budweiser Breeders' Cup, featuring 1989 Eclipse Award sprint champion Safely Kept.
