Fifth-fastest qualifier PYC Legacy, a gelded son of PYC Fun N Fancy racing for Rito Sosa of Blanchard, Oklahoma, got up to the wire in time to win Sunday's 300-yard, $533,270 Oklahoma Futurity (G2) at Remington Park.

Aided by a reported 19-mph tail wind, PYC Legacy defeated fourth-fastest qualifier Dashin Hocks by a nose in :15.353. Juan Pulido rode the bay gelding for trainer Waylan Melton.

"He broke great and it was really tight, but (I liked) the way he finished," said Pulido. "I helped break this horse at the farm and taught him how to rip from the gate. He is always business."

PYC Legacy made his career debut with a 1 3/4-length victory in the eighth of 17 Oklahoma Futurity trials on March 11. The gelding was bred in Oklahoma by by Jonathan Chavira, and he is out of Issys Legacy, a homebred unplaced 13-year-old daughter of the Corona Cartel stallion Tailgunner Tom.

The $213,308 winner's share of the purse from his first stakes win increased PYC Legacy's earnings to $219,038.

Pearl Hart finished third, a half of a length from PYC Legacy, and was followed by fastest qualifier Piano Man Sam, Kams Relentless, Colleys Cartel, Dodge City, Fly On Sister, JT True Grit, and Fun N Fire.
