NEW YORK -- Grey Stark rallied from last to win the $80,000 allowance feature Friday for fillies and mares on the turf at Belmont Park.

The gray 4-year-old trained by Chad Brown angled five-wide at the top of the stretch and surged to a 3 1/4-length victory over Blame It On Me.

The even-money favorite ran the 1 1/16 miles in 1;47.40 over the course rated soft, giving jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. his third straight win on the card. Grey Stark paid $4.10, $2.90 and $2.10.

Blame It On Me returned $7.50 and $3.30, and Sympathy paid $2.70 to show.
