RAINHA DA BATERIA Wins Woodbine’s G2 Dance Smartly
Making only her second start of the season, RAINHA DA BATERIA charged down the stretch to finish in a dead heat for the win in the Dance Smartly S.-G2 on the undercard of the Queen’s Plate at Woodbine. The already multiple Graded winner by BROKEN VOW rallied on the far turn three wide and into the stretch and continued to close down the lane and caught the leader at the wire in this 1 1/4-mile turf event. It was her third Graded stakes win of her career. RAINHA DA BATERIA won Keeneland’s JPMorgan Chase Jessamine S.-G3 in her third start and two, and also took the Canadian S.-G2 here last year. Overall she has won or placed in eight Graded races. Lifetime record: 19-4-4-2, $589,160. O-Lael Stables. B-Alexander Groves Matz, LLC. T-Chad Brown.
