NEW YORK (AP) - Risky Rachel, the 1-5 favorite, won the $80,750 Put The Powder To It Stakes in the mud at Belmont Park on Friday, beating Lady On the Run by 4 3/4 lengths.

Risky Rachel pulled clear at the top of the stretch for her sixth win in 12 starts. The four-horse field was for New York-bred fillies and mares.

Lady On the Run returned $2.40. Midnight Visit was third followed by Lady Gracenote. There was no show wagering.
