Aqueduct: Queen's Triomphe upsets Montauk


OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Queen's Triomphe, the longest-priced horse in a nine-horse field, tackled pacesetter Golden Damsel approaching the eighth pole and drew clear for a 2 1/4-length victory in the $82,875 Montauk Handicap for New York-bred fillies and mares.

Message Red, the 8-5 favorite, won a three-horse photo for second over Princess Dixie and Golden Damsel.

Despite having won her last four dirt starts, Queen's Triomphe was sent off at 64-1 and returned $130 to win. Queen's Triomphe had finished fourth in the Perfect Arc division of the New York Stallion Stakes on soft turf in her last start. A 4-year-old daughter of Cure the Blues, Queen's Triomphe is owned by Gregory and Stephen Kelly and trained by Tom Bush.
