OZONE PARK, N.Y. - The statistics at the bottom of A.P. Andie's past performances indicated that her new trainer, Jason Servis, has been profitable with dirt sprinters. Those stats received a turbo-boost when A.P. Andie upset Saturday's six-furlong and paid $107.50.

The longest shot in a field of nine, A.P. Andie was returning from a three-month layoff that was prompted by several subpar performances toward the end of a 1-for-13 campaign in 2002.

A.P. Andie evidently runs well fresh, and must have remembered that her best Beyer had been delivered on Aqueduct's inner track early last winter, because she won Saturday like she was 3-5.

Ridden by apprentice Luis Chavez, who got the call after Heberto Castillo Jr. declined the mount, according to Servis, A.P. Andie maneuvered to the inside on the backstretch of the Correction, causing Mike Luzzi to steady briefly aboard Saskya. She hugged the rail thereafter and overtook pacesetter Golden Made with a strong stretch rally.

"Nobody wanted to ride her," said Servis. "It may sound insane to say, but I was very confident bringing her over."

Shawklit Mint, the 2-1 favorite, rallied wide into the lane under John McKee and finished second, nearly five lengths ahead of Golden Made, who faded late to wind up third.

A.P. Andie was timed in 1:11.10.

A.P. Andie, who survived a claim of foul by Luzzi, became the longest-priced winner at Aqueduct this year. She earned $49,935 from the $83,225 purse.

The Correction was the first career stakes win for Chavez.

"She ran an awesome race today. I'm proud of her," said Chavez, who won three races on the card to move ahead of McKee as leading bug rider at the meet.

A.P. Andie helped create a two-day pick six carryover of $150,0617. On a day of improbable upsets, nobody even picked five, and the pick four consolation was worth $433.50.
