Ete Indian, Sole Volante to Duel While Rainbow Soars
Monday, June 8, 2020

    HALLANDALE BEACH - The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $2.3 Million Wednesday at Gulfstream Park.

    The multi-race wager went unsolved for the 18th day Sunday, and multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $29,043. The
Wednesday sequence will span Races 5-10, including an allowance for 3-year-olds in the Race 9 feature.

    The Patrick Biancone-trained duo of Ete Indien, the Gr. II Fountain of Youth winner and Gr. I Florida Derby third-place finisher, and Sole Volante, the Gr. III Sam F. Davis winner and Gr. II Tampa Bay Derby runner-up, have been entered in the mile allowance, which will also feature the return to action of Florida Derby runner-up Shivaree.

    Stakes-winners Soros and With Verve, as well as recent winners Jesus’s Team and Hard Lighting, are also entered.

The Rainbow 6 sequence will be kicked off by a five-furlong maiden special weight race for 2-year-old fillies on the grass.  Trainer Wesley Ward has two entrants – Amanzi Yimpilo, an Irish-bred daughter of No Nay Never who was bought at the 2019 Keeneland September sale for $300,000, and Shan’s Tiger, a daughter of Tale of the Cat owned by breeder Rodney Orr.

    Trainer Todd Pletcher will be represented by Lady Quintessa, a daughter of Munnings, while trainer Mark Casse will send out Baby Mo, a daughter of Upstart.

La Australiana Pulls off 14-1 Upset in Treasure Coast      

    La Australiana surged late with a wide rally to pull off a 14-1 upset in Sunday’s $60,000 Treasure Coast. Trained by Juan Carlos Avila and owned by former Major League All-Star Victor Martinez, the connections of Kentucky Derby prospect King Guillermo, La Australiana rated well off the early pace that was contested by Always Shopping and Helping Lisa D through early fractions of :23.46 and :46.89 seconds in the 1 1/8-mile overnight turf stakes for fillies and mares.

    Jockey Leonel Reyes sent La Australiana seven-wide leaving the turn into the homestretch, and the 4-year-old daughter of Australia kicked in through the lane to prevail over a late- rallying Olympic Games by a neck. Zarina finished third, another 1 ¼ lengths back.

    La Australiana ran 1 1/8 miles over a firm
turf course in 1:47.63 to notch her first stakes victory.
