NEW YORK (AP) - Maleeh rallied for a 2 3/4-length victory over long shot Tenango on Saturday in the $100,000 Fred Capossela Stakes for 3-year-olds at Aqueduct.

The colt trained by Kiaran McLaughlin improved to 2 for 2 with both wins coming at Aqueduct. Fifth in the early stages, Maleeh sailed past Clawback, the 3-5 favorite, in the final furlong and finished strongly under a vigorous hand ride by Eddie Castro.

The time was 1:10.43 for the six furlongs on the fast track.

Maleeh, fourth choice in the betting at 5-1, paid $13.40, $6.50 and $3.60. Tenango, the biggest price in the field at 57-1, overcame a poor start to edge Clawback by a head for the place spot, returning $35.20 and $7.70.

Clawback paid $2.10 to show.
