Trophee takes season debut in Aqueduct feature

NEW YORK (AP) Trophee rallied to win her season debut Wednesday, beating Queen's Parade by 3 1/2 lengths at Aqueduct in the $73,500 allowance feature for fillies and mares on the turf.

The 5-year-old made her first start since finishing fifth in the La Prevoyante Handicap at Gulfstream Park on Dec. 26.

Trophee is trained by Christophe Clement, as was third-place finisher Carnevale. They were uncoupled in the wagering.

Irad Ortiz Jr. was aboard for the 1 3/8 miles in 2:16.50.

Trophee paid $4.80, $2.80 and $2.10 as the 7/5 favorite. Queen's Parade returned $3.60 and $2.10, and Carnevale paid $2.10 to show.
