Unrivaled Belle always gives her connections and backers some anxiety
before her races. More often than not, though, she provides some relief
when the race is over.
Such was the case again in Saturday's Grade 3 Rampart Stakes at
Gulfstream Park. After forcing jockey Kent Desormeaux to jump off in
order to load into the starting gate, Unrivaled Belle uneventfully took
Desormeaux one lap around Gulfstream Park's oval to a 1 3/4-length
victory in the $150,000 Rampart.
