Medaglia d'Argento pulls 19-1 upset in Big A feature

NEW YORK (AP) Medaglia d'Argento nosed out Misszippityslewda for a 19-1 upset Friday in the $75,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.

She paid $41.60, $13.20 and $4.30

Luis Saez was aboard for trainer Linda Rice as the 4-year-old ran 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:17.92.

Misszippityslewda returned $6.90 and $2.80, and Wavell Avenue paid $2.30 to show as the 6-5 favorite.
