Milaya rallies past Flick of an Eye in Aqueduct feature
NEW YORK (AP) Milaya rallied to beat the pacesetting Flick of an Eye by two lengths Friday in the $67,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.
Irad Ortiz Jr. was aboard for his third win of day as Milaya ran the 1 1/16 miles in 1:46.41.
The 4-year-old trained by Michael Dilger got her second win in 13 starts, paying $9, $5.40 and $3.50. Flick of an Eye returned $6 and $3.60. Daisy Cutter, the 7-5 favorite, paid $2.50 to show.
Pushme Pullyou stumbled and dumped jockey Manny Franco at the break. After swinging wide, the filly angled back to the rail and led the field to the wire. The riders, aware of the loose horse, gave her a wide berth.
Pushme Pullyou, apparently uninjured, was caught by an outrider. Franco walked off the track and rode the following race.
