Gamblers Cheer Horse Named Subprime

Subprime wins ninth race



    A jockey races at Aqueduct Race Track.

    Gamblers cheered this week when a horse named "Subprime" won the ninth race at the Aqueduct race track in New York.

    The victory on Thursday was the first win in three tries for the 2-year-old filly, but the name made her an instant crowd darling.

    The horse ran as the favorite and paid $6.30 on a $2 bet. She's owned by Virginia horse breeder Edward Evans.

    Subprime was sired by a stallion with another name inspired by Wall Street: High Yield.
