NEW YORK -- Wow Me Free closed with a rush to nip Cryptoquip by a neck Saturday in the $79,550 Ladies Handicap for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.

"I knew I had a lot of horse in the stretch," jockey Alan Garci said. "When I got her outside, I knew I had the best horse in this race."

Wow Me Free, making her first start for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, improved her record to 4-for-12. The 3-year-old ran 1miles on the fast track in 2:04.63.

Wow Me Free paid $9.10, $5 and $3.30. Cryptoquip returned $5.80 and $3.80, and Borrowing Base paid $4 to show.

With a wintery mix of snow, rain and high wind in the forecast, Aqueduct canceled the Sunday card. After a holiday break, live racing will resume at the Big A on Dec. 26.
