Ruffino romps in the Big A feature



NEW YORK (AP) — Ruffino, the 2-5 favorite, romped to a seven-length victory over Dakota Roadhouse on Friday in the $57,000 allowance feature at Aqueduct.

The 9-year-old gelding, ridden by David Cohen and trained by David Jacobson, won for 11th time in 30 starts. The time was 1:44.58 for the mile, 70 yards over the fast track in the race for New York breds.

Ruffino paid $2.80, $2.60 and $2.10. Dakota Roadhouse, a 51-1 shot who set the pace, returned $19 and $7.20. Diamond District paid $2.50 to show.
