Zarina Wants It Her Way in Sunday’s In the Breeze

Jul 2, 2020
Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $150,000
Super HI 5 Carryover $6,299


HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Robert Roffey Jr.’s Zarina is a stakes-winning filly who is set in her ways. Let her settle off the pace and make one run late, and you can count on her to be a serious factor in the dash to the finish line.

The 4-year-old daughter of Temple City will be reunited with jockey Leonel Reyes in Sunday’s $60,000 In the Breeze, boosting trainer Chad Stewart’s confidence that she will give it her best shot in the mile overnight stakes for fillies and mares on turf.

In her most recent start under Paco Lopez, Zarina received a seemingly perfect ground-saving trip in the June 7 Treasure City, in which she stalked a fast early pace along the inside and made the lead in mid-stretch, only to weaken to third.

“Paco is an aggressive rider. He gave her a good trip, but I think he had her too close and asked her a little early. But she ran hard and came out of the race in really good shape,” Stewart said.

The ever-patient Reyes scored a come-from-behind victory in the $100,000 Martha Washington the first time he rode her about a year ago at Gulfstream.

“Ideally, you’d like to see a really good pace and see her about three-quarters of the way back and let her come running,” Stewart said. “Leonel seems to ride those types of horses very well.”

Zarina will have a reunion with Kelsey’s Cross, a multiple graded stakes-placed 4-year-old filly who captured the $100,000 Ginger Punch with a strong rally at Gulfstream Park last time out.

Trained by Patrick Biancone, the daughter of Anthony’s Cross was outfinished by Zarina while coming in third in the Martha Washington last July. She went on to finish third in the $750,000 Saratoga Oaks in her next start. Like Zarina, the stretch-running Kelsey’s Cross’ chances of winning the In the Breeze will be enhanced by a fast pace.

Luca Panici, who was aboard for Kelsey’s Cross’ 2 ½-length romp in the Ginger Punch, has the return mount aboard Sanford Bacon and Patrick Biancone Racing LLC’s filly.

Reitman Stables LLC’s Crown and Sugar and P & G Stables LLC’s Picara, who finished second and third, respectively, behind Kelsey’s Cross in the Ginger Punch, are both entered in the In the Breeze.

GU Racing Stable LLC’s Belle Laura, a graded stakes-placed 4-year-old daughter of Mucho Macho Man who registered a front-running allowance victory last time out in her 2020 debut, figures to provide some pace Sunday.

“She is my best filly. She ran very good last time to win the first time back,” trainer Juan Carlos Avila said. “She is a very nice filly. We like her a lot.”

Isla Road, Rosa Star, Midnight Soiree, Bienville Street, Great Sister Diane and Dangerous Curves round out the field. Crumb Bum is a man-track-only entrant.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Pool Guaranteed at $150,000

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $150,000 Friday at Gulfstream Park.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved Wednesday on the first day following Tuesday’s mandatory payout. Multiple tickets with six winners were each worth $418.74 Wednesday.

The carryover jackpot is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

There will also be a Super Hi-5 carryover of $6,299.35 heading into Friday’s card.
