WASHINGTON, PA, July 27,2013 — Somwherovrarainbow, last year’s divisional champion who has struggled through sickness at times in 2013, appeared back on track Saturday at The Meadows when she captured a division of the $136,920 Quinton Patterson Adioo Volo. Nikki Beach took the other split in the event for 3-year-old filly pacers, which was part of the Delvin Miller Adios card.

Montrell Teague piloted Somwherovrarainbow to her front-end victory in 1:51.1 for his father, trainer George Teague, Jr., and owners George Teague, Jr. Inc., K&R Racing and Ted Gewertz.

Although she’s won four of eight starts this year, the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Rainbow Blue disappointed in the Lynch, finishing fourth in her elimination and seventh in the final. On Adios Day, she fired to the front from post 5 and encountered no serious challenges until the stretch, where she held off the determined Mattwestern by a neck. Antigua Hanover rallied for show.

“She’s been tying up and had a little bit of allergies, but we got it fixed now,” Montrell Teague said. “I think she can race a lot better. If she gets the right race and the right competition, she can go a bigger mile. I think Dad has it all figured out. He’s been watching over her pretty good.”

With the victory, Somwherovrarainbow boasts $674,547 in career earnings.

Nikki Beach powered to the front with a quick backside burst and rolled to victory in a career-best 1:51.2, a neck better than Novascotia Hanover, with Handsoffmycupcake third. Chris Paige drove the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Western Wisdom, who extended her lifetime bankroll to $390,109, for trainer Tony Alagna and owner Brittany Farms.
