Evidently by a nose at 13-1 in Big A’s Long Island Handicap

Evidently charged up the rail to pull a 13-1 upset Sunday in the $200,000 Long Island Handicap for fillies and mares on the turf at Aqueduct.

A 5-year-old owned and trained by Roy Lerman, Evidently rallied from seventh to edge the pacesetting Earring by a nose. The winner ran 1 1/2 miles in 2:34.50.

Antonio Gallardo was aboard as Evidently improved on a seventh-place finish in this race last year with her third win in 21 starts.

“The addition of blinkers probably made a difference,” Lerman said. “Tony had never ridden her before but she was a touch more aggressive and thankfully it worked out today.”

Evidently paid $29.20, $11.60 and $9.60. Earring returned $7.50 and $6.50, and Desiree Clary paid $6.40 to show.
