Long shot takes Suburban

Flat Out, the longest shot at 13-1, rallied for a 6 1/2-length upset victory in the $300,000 Suburban Handicap at Belmont Park yesterday.

Ridden by Alex Solis, the 5-year-old stormed home to hit the wire in 1:46.64 for the 11/8 miles.

Hymn Book, the 5-2 second choice, finished second -- a length ahead of favorite Rodman.

The victory was the fourth in nine lifetime starts for Flat Out, who is trained by Charles "Scooter" Dickey.

Flat Out paid $29.20 to win.

Dominus beat 4-5 favorite Adios Charlie by 13/4 lengths in the $150,000 Dwyer Stakes for 3-year-olds. He paid $7.80 to win with Julien Leparoux aboard for trainer Steve Asmussen.

Teaks North takes UN

Teaks North held off two rivals in the stretch to win the $750,000 United Nations Stakes at Monmouth.

Trained by Justin Sallusto and ridden by Eddie Castro, the 4-year-old gelding ran the 1 3/8 miles on a firm turf course in 2:13.28 and paid $16 to win. The win in the Grade I race was the seventh in 17 career starts for Teaks North, who has now earned $976,964.

Earlier in the card, Kensei held off Soaring Empire in the deep stretch to win the $200,000 Salvator Mile by three-quarters of a length. Ridden by Edgar Prado and trained by Asmussen, the win in the Grade III race was the fifth in 17 career starts for the 5-year-old.
