Aqueduct: Muhaawara wins overnight stake


  Muhaawara (8th, $10.00), a 3-year-old Shadwell Farm homebred who was coming off a first-level allowance win on the sixth attempt, came right back to post a mild upset in the $60,000 Sky Beauty overnight stakes under Alan Garcia.

 Wind Caper blew by pacesetter Poovey on the far turn and opened a long lead, but the 6-5 favorite faltered late and faded to third behind Muhaawara and 3-2 second choice Check Point.

  The Kiaran McLaughlin-trained Muhaawara, the lone 3-year-old in the five-horse field, ran the mile and 70 yards in 1:43.43 on a fast inner track.

  Diva's Gold was a late scratch.
