Belmont: Karakorum Elektra beats the boys (again)


  The 6-year-old mare Karakorum Elektra (8th, $16.80) finished with a flourish on the far outside to beat the boys in the co-featured $51,000 optional claiming sprint on the inner turf. Affirmatif, favored at 8-5, lacked room in traffic turning for home, and finished well inside when finally clear.

  The Linda Rice-trained Karakorum Elektra, who beat males twice here last year, improved her record to 7-3-0 from 15 starts on Belmont turf.
