3YO ASIYA Places in Aqueduct’s Busanda S.

After registering a runaway win in a Maiden Special Weight here in December, ASIYA had a troubled trip but was still able to place in the $100,000 Busanda S. Stretching out to two turns for the first time in this one mile and 70 yards event, the 3-year-old filly by DAAHER broke awkwardly at the break then settled three wide in close proximity of the leader. Swinging four wide as they turned for home, ASIYA kicked home down the stretch but was impeded in the final 100 yards, clipping heals and stumbling badly when another horse came out. After finishing third, ASIYA was placed second.
