Aqueduct: Chowder's First scores upset

Email

Chowder's First, the longest price in a four-horse field, rallied past Yankee Mon in the stretch and won the $75,950 Kings Point Handicap by 1 1/4 lengths.

Spite the Devil rallied for second, 1 3/4 lengths ahead of Rogue Agent. Yankee Mon, the 4-5 favorite, finished last.

Chowder's First, a 4-year-old son of Let Goodtimes Roll who is trained by Phil Serpe, was making his first start since finishing sixth in the Empire Classic last October. He saved ground on the inside while Rogue Agent ran three-quarters of a mile in 1:11.92 while being pressed by Yankee Mon.

Joe Bravo guided Chowder's First into the three path around the turn and he rallied strongly in the stretch to get the win. Chowder's First covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1:51.44 over a good track and paid $16.40.
