NEW YORK (AP) Guapaza got her first U.S. victory on Sunday, beating Trophee by a half length in the $95,000 River Memories Stakes for fillies and mares on the turf at Belmont Park.

The 5-year-old from Chile had turned in a trio of quality efforts since joining Chad Brown's barn this year, hitting the board in all three against tougher competition. The River Memories was a modest spot against only three rivals, and the 4/5 favorite responded with her seventh win in 21 starts.

Javier Castellano was aboard for the 1 1/2 miles in 2:33.49.

Guapaza paid $3.60 and $2.10. Trophee returned $2.90.

Songoficeandfire was third followed by Villa Savoye. There was no show wagering.
