Lady Paradime, 19-1, takes Big A feature
NEW YORK (AP) Lady Paradime pulled a 19-1 upset in the $67,000 allowance feature for 3-year-old fillies on Thursday as racing returned to the main track at Aqueduct.
Monday was the final card on the winterized inner track. The richest race on the first day over the outer strip produced a big surprise as Lady Paradime, beaten by a combined 39 1/4 lengths in her last two races at Gulfstream Park, rallied for a five-length win over 1-5 favorite U.S.S. O’Brien.
Rajiv Maragh was aboard for trainer Kelly Breen as Lady Paradime got her second win in five starts. The time was 1:37.53 for the mile on the fast track.
Lady Paradime paid $40.20, $9.10 and $4.30. U.S.S. O’Brien returned $2.30 and $2.10, and Aqua Regia paid $2.50 to show.
