RAINHA DA BATERIA Wins $300,000 Canadian S.-G2 at Woodbine
Last seen placing in the G1 Diana S., beaten only a head, RAINHA DA BATERIA rallied to win the $300,000 Grade 2 Canadian S. on a turf course rated good on a showery day at Woodbine. The 4-year-old filly by BROKEN VOW raced in second about five lengths off the lead down the backstretch. She began to draw closer to the leader on the turn, then battled the length of the stretch to win this about 1 1/8-mile test by a nose, earning a 101 Beyer. Besides the Diana, RAINHA DA BATERIA this year has been runner-up in the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile S.-G2, to Champion TEPIN, and the Suwannee River S.-G3. As a 2-year-old she won Keeneland’s JP Morgan Chase Jessamine S.-G3 in her third start. With this win RAINHA DA BATERIA earned an automatic berth into the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf-G1. Lifetime record: 16-3-4-2, $520,060. O-Lael Stables. B-Alexander Groves Matz. T-Chad Brown.
