TORONTO, October 27 – Somwherovrarainbow, driven by Andy Miller, delivered an off-the-pace score for trainer George Teague Jr. in the $600,000 Breeders Crown Two-year-old Filly Pace on Saturday night at Woodbine.
The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Rainbow Blue got away fifth behind UF Dragons Queen (David Miller), who clocked the opening panel in :27. From third, L Dees Lioness (Scott Zeron) was the first to make a bid for command. As soon as L Dees Lioness cleared, a second-over I Luv The Nitelife (Jack Moiseyev) took the lead, putting up the half in :55.2.
Elimination winner Somwherovrarainbow, who was third-over, added pressure to the leader past the three-quarters in 1:23. Striking the front into the stretch, the 6-5 favourite was able to fend off I Luv The Nitelife to score the one and a half length victory in 1:52.2. L Dees Lioness stayed for third.
“This one here seemed a little bit special right from the day of breaking her,” said Teague Jr. “She’s just an overall complete horse. Speed, mannerisms. She was a little bit harder early on, but corrected by different equipment. She set up well for the end of the season because she was a little bit aggressive early.”
Somwherovrarainbow has a record of 5-2-1 from nine starts. With the win, the bay lifted her earnings to $415,337 for owners George Teague JR Inc., K And R Racing LLC and Theodore Gewertz.
Somwherovrarainbow returned $4.50, $2.90 and $2.10, combining with I Luv The Nitelife ($3.30, $2.70) for a $14.90 (2-5) exactor. A 2-5-1 (L Dees Lioness, $3.20 to show) triactor was worth $31.40, while a $1 superfecta [2-5-1-9 (Wherethegirlsare)] paid $225.25.
