NEW YORK (AP) - Twice the Lady overcame a stewards' inquiry and two objections Saturday to win the $71,250 Affectionately Stakes for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.

Spooked by a shadow on the track in deep stretch, Twice the Lady shied into the path of Withgreatpleasure. Jockey Cornelio Velasquez quickly got Twice the Lady straightened away, and she kicked clear to a two-length victory.

The stewards blinked the inquiry light and David Nunn and Travis Dunkelberger, the trainer and jockey of runner-up Withgreatpleasure, both filed objections.

After a video review, the order of finish stood, giving Twice the Lady her sixth win in 20 starts. Trained by Tony Dutrow, the 5-year-old ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.05, paying $7.20 and $4.40.

Withgreatpleasure returned $4. Stephanie Jayne was third followed by 3-5 favorite R Gypsy Gold. There was no show wagering on the four-horse field.
