Easter Gift wins Big A feature
NEW YORK -- Easter Gift rallied to beat Summer Sunset by a half-length on Thursday in the $69,580 allowance feature at Aqueduct.
The 3-2 favorite in the five-horse field, Easter Gift ended a three-race losing streak dating back to his victory in the Smarty Jones Stakes at Parx Racing last September. Rajiv Maragh was aboard for trainer Chad Brown as the 4-year-old ran the one mile in 1:38.04, paying $5, $3.10 and $2.10.
Summer Sunset returned $3.10 and $2.40 while Spa City Fever paid $2.80 to show.
