NEW YORK (AP) Dream Saturday held off Irsaal by three quarters of a length Saturday to win the $69,000 allowance feature at Aqueduct.
The 6-1 shot ridden by Chuckie Lopez set the pace, opening up a 5 1/2-length lead at the top of the stretch. Irsaal offered the only meaningful challenge in the lane. It was another five lengths back to third-place finisher Mills.
Dream Saturday, a 3-year-old colt trained by Michelle Nevin, got his third win in eight starts, paying $14, $9 and $5.70. Irsaal returned $6.90 and $5.10 while Mills paid $11.80 to show.
The time was 1:42.20 for the one mile, 70 yards.
