The Estate of Edward P. Evans’ Quiet Giant rolled to a three-length win Sunday in the $60,000 Lady On The Run Stakes for fillies and mares.
Trainer Todd Pletcher again dominated an Aqueduct stakes a day after his horses ran 1-2 in the Evening Attire Stakes, Pletcher had a 1-3 finish, with McVictory taking the show spot.
Quiet Giant, the 4-5 favorite, improved to 4 for 7 with her second straight stakes win at Aqueduct. Ramon Dominguez was aboard as the 4-year-old ran the mile in 1:36.51 on the fast track.
After stalking the pacesetting Wind Caper through fractions of 23.79 and 47.56 seconds, Quiet Giant and Dominguez drew on even terms with that rival at the five-sixteenths pole. Quiet Giant ran outside of Wind Caper until just inside the eighth pole when, despite attempting to lug in, she drew clear to get the relatively easy victory.
It was the second stakes straight victory for Quiet Giant, a 4-year-old daughter of Giant’s Causeway.
