Choral Society scores upset in A.P. Smithwick


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Weight proved to be the great equalizer in Thursday’s $125,000 A.P. Smithwick Memorial Steeplechase, as longshot Choral Society, starting under a relatively feathery 142-pound impost, finished full of run to register a 1 1/4-length victory over Martini Brother, with Demonstrative, the 158-pound highweight and 1-2 favorite, finishing a disappointing third.
