Western Aristocrat controlled the pace and turned back a challenge from favored Brilliant Speed to collect his first Grade 1 victory in Saturday's $250000 Jamaica Handicap at Belmont Park. In the hands red-hot rider Corey Nakatani, who collected his fifth of six victories on the day in the Jamaica, Western Aristocrat was sent straight to the lead where he strolled through opening fractions of 26.27 and 52.20. With Brilliant Speed drawing alongside Western Aristocrat turning for home, the winner was let out and went on to a one-length victory, stopping the clock at 1:50.34 for 1 1/8 miles over Belmont's "firm" inner turf course.
