Sage Valley wins Mr. Nasty Stakes
NEW YORK (AP)
Sage Valley led all the way on Friday to capture the Mr. Nasty Stakes as racing resumed at Aqueduct.
The cards on Wednesday and Thursday were canceled as a snow storm hit the New York area, which is still recovering from superstorm Sandy.
Sage Valley extended his winning streak to three in the stakes for 3-year-olds, beating Wild Target by 6-3/4 lengths over the track rated good. Ramon Dominguez was aboard for trainer Rudy Rodriguez as the 6-5 second choice ran the seven furlongs in 1 minute, 22.35 seconds.
Sage Valley paid $4.40 on a $2 win bet. Raging Daoust was third.
Overdriven, the even-money favorite, was fourth in his first race since ending his juvenile season at 2 for 2.
