Rainbow Heir Kicks Away in Jersey Shore

New Monmouth Park logo
New Farm’s Rainbow Heir set a pressured pace early before kicking away from his competition in the lane, posting a five length win in the Grade 3, $100,000 Jersey Shore Stakes on a special 4th of July card at Monmouth Park.

After going the first two furlongs in :21 4/5 and the half mile in :44 3/5, Rainbow Heir cruised to a six furlong final time of 1:09 2/5.  He paid $4.40, $3 and $2.60 as the favorite in the field of six 3-year-old colts and geldings.  Amarish completed the $40.60 exacta and returned $5.60 to place and $3.80 to show.  It was another 4 ¼ lengths back to Uptown Boy, who paid $3.20 to show.

“He got out really quick,” said winning trainer Ben Perkins Jr.  “He relaxed afterwards and as soon as Elvis (jockey Trujillo) got clear he was kind of just sitting and waiting.  He’s an excellent horse and he has a similar body and has the same disposition as Wildcat Heir, both are really relaxed and lightning fast.”

“I knew I had a speed horse to the outside of me (Whiskey Romeo) and we were head-to-head for about the first five jumps,” said winning jockey Elvis Trujillo.  “My horse broke so good that we were able to make the lead and when the other horse sat back just a little bit I thought ‘slow it down as much as possible.’  In the stretch, I asked him, he switched leads and that was it.  He’s just really good.”

A New Jersey-bred by Wildcat Heir from the Prospectors Gamble mare Rainbow Pride, the homebred Rainbow Heir has won all four of his lifetime starts, good for earnings of $152,460.
