A heavy snowstorm in the New York area forced the cancellation of the Friday, Saturday and Sunday cards.

Be Bullish was coupled in the betting with sixth-place finisher Notmyfirstime as the 5-2 second choice. The oldest runner in field, at 9, Be Bullish rallied in the stretch, beating 4-5 favorite Marriedtothemusic by 2-3/4 lengths for the 15th victory of a 75-race career. It was his second win in this stakes for New York breds, having captured the 2011 renewal.

The veteran gray gelding carried apprentice jockey Taylor Rice to her first stakes victory. The David Jacobson trainee ran the six furlongs in 1:12.05 on the track rated good.

Be Bullish paid $7.50 to win. Mine Over Matter was third.
