Class drop: Scarly Charly scores in Belmont feature


NEW YORK — Scarly Charly, heavily favored on a big class drop, beat Box Office by one length on Thursday in the $77,000 allowance feature at Belmont Park.

The 5-year-old gelding trained by Mike Hushion finished seventh at 69-1 to Palace Malice, racing's top older runner, last time out in the Metropolitan Handicap on the Belmont Stakes undercard.

This was an easier spot, and the 3-5 favorite came through with his second win in nine starts. Manuel Franco was aboard for the mile in 1:35.94 on the fast track.

Scarly Charly paid $3.50, $2.70 and $2.20. Box Office returned $4.50 and $2.90 while Sinistra paid $3.10 to show.
