Jockey Cohen wins 3 in Aqueduct return
NEW YORK -- Jockey David Cohen celebrated his return to Aqueduct by winning three races Sunday, including the $73,500 Cagey Exuberance Stakes aboard Celtic Chant.
Back in New York for the first time since the fall, Cohen guided the 5-year-old to a front-running victory, her eighth in 22 starts, in the race for fillies and mares. The second leading rider at Aqueduct two of the previous three winters, Cohen most recently competed at Gulfstream Park in Florida.
Celtic Chant, trained by Chris Englehart, ran six furlongs in 1:10.36, beating Delightful Quality, the 4-5 favorite, by a half-length. She paid $10, $4.20 and $2.60.
Delightful Quality returned $2.50 and $2.10, and Enchante paid $2.30 to show.
