Butters ($138.20) pulled away late to upset the field in the $49,638 Sweepida Stakes at the San Joaquin County Fair, a 5 1/2-furlong stakes race for 3-year-old fillies.

Butters defeated the 14-1 Cosmopolitan Lady by four lengths in 1:04.74, with the 96-1 shot Hammett Star third. The three combined for a $53,052.20 trifecta payoff.

Butters was ridden by Catalino Martinez for trainer Angelo Tekos Jr.
