Sylvestris wins the Belmont feature



NEW YORK (AP) — Sylvestris scored at 19-1, beating Christina d’Oro, an even bigger price at 22-1, by seven lengths on Friday in the $72,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares on the turf at Belmont Park.

It was the first win in three U.S. starts for the 4-year-old who started her career in England. Jose Lezcano was aboard for trainer Bob Barbara as Sylvestris ran the seven furlongs in 1:22.50 over the course rated good.

Sylvestris paid $40.20, $17.60 and $8.80. Christina d’Oro returned $17 and $7.80 while Sounds of the City paid $4 to show.
