Module motors to 6-1 upset in Aqueduct feature
NEW YORK (AP) Module led all the way for a 6-1 upset Thursday in the $67,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.
Hall of Famer Bill Mott made two changes that produced the second win in eight starts for the 3-year-old. Module was equipped with blinkers for the first tiime to narrow her field of vision, and she shifted back to the main track after several lethargic efforts on turf.
Module, with John Velazquez aboard, wasted little time taking charge. She coasted to a 2 3/4-length win over Daisy Cutter, the 8-5 favorite, who rallied from eighth to get the place spot.
The time was 1:38.45 for the mile.
Module paid $15.40, $7.20 and $4.70.
Daisy Cutter returned $3.30 and $2.60 and Crowning Affair paid $3.30 to show.
