Unrivaled Belle, benefitting from a poor break by Venezuelan shipper Bambera, took advantage of an uncontested lead and sailed home to a 1 3/4-length victory in the $150,000 Rampart Stakes (gr. III) March 20 at Gulfstream
Venezuelan star Bambera, who is expected to take on undefeated Zenyatta in the Apple Blossom Invitational next month, adds intrigue to the field of eight selected for the $150,000 Rampart Stakes (gr. III) at Gulfstream Park.
As expected, 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra and two-time champion Zenyatta were chief among the 45 fillies and mares nominated to the $5 million Apple Blossom Invitational (gr. I) at Oaklawn Park April 9.
