Airwave (5-1) was the upset winner of Friday's Newmarket feature, the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes over six furlongs, defeating the odds-on favorite, Russian Rhythm, by 1 1/2 lengths. Danaskaya ran third in a gutsy performance that saw her in the thick of things throughout. . . . The Breeders Sales Co. of Louisiana sold 136 yearlings on Tuesday at Louisiana Downs for $757,750, or an average of $5,572 each. There were 53 buybacks. The sale-topper was a $48,000 colt by Zuppardo's Prince.
