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.
