Uno Duo wins Big A's Fickle Fanny Stakes
NEW YORK -- Uno Duo easily won the $95,000 Fickle Fanny Stakes as the even-money favorite Thursday at Aqueduct.
The gray 3-year-old trained by Bill Mott and ridden by Junior Alvarado pulled clear in the stretch for a 3½- length victory. Lady Gracenote and Carameaway finished in a dead heat for second.
Uno Duo ran six furlongs in 1:12.99 for her third win in seven starts. She paid $4 and $2.20 in the stakes for fillies and mares. Lady Gracenote paid $2.10, and Carameaway returned $3.
There was no show wagering on the four-horse field.
While Uno Duo prevailed as the public choice, long-shot players rejoiced when Front Cover captured the sixth race for maidens at 99-1. She paid $200 to win as jockey Men Chen won for the first time since 2009.
