Carnirainbow seeks 6th stakes triumph

December 19, 1992|By Ross Peddicord | Ross Peddicord,Staff Writer

Carnirainbow seeks her sixth 1992 stakes victory today in the $50,000-added Cameo Stakes at Laurel Race Course.

But a rematch with Broad Gains, who beat her in the Maryland Juvenile Championship about a month ago, will not take place.

Trainer Dick Small said yesterday he has sent Broad Gains to his Pacoma Farm in Camden, S.C., for the winter along with other such stable stars as Star Minister and Valley Crossing.

The plan, Small said, is to bring Broad Gains back to Maryland when the Hayward Avenue side of Pimlico Race Course opens in the spring.

The Cameo is an "open" stakes, which means it does not carry any special restrictions. Four of Carnirainbow's five victories have come in Maryland-bred or Maryland-sired company.

The 2-year-old daughter of Country Life Farm stallion, Carnivalay, faces such promising newcomers as Lily of the North and Open Toe, a pair of Christiana Stable Kentucky-bred fillies, and the undefeated Clever Clever, who recently changed hands. She was sold to F. Eugene Dixon, Jr., by the Baltimore-based Dumbarton Stable and makes her first appearance for her new trainer, Dr. John R. S. Fisher.

Book signing

Josh Pons, whose family owns Country Life Farm in Bel Air, will be in the Laurel Grandstand Gift Shop from 1-4 p.m. today signing copies of his recently published book, "Country Life Diary."

The 419-page book, packed with details about breeding and raising horses, also offers numerous insights into country living and Maryland horse industry personalities.

Profits from books sold at Laurel go to the Maryland Assistance Fund, which helps farm workers trying to overcome substance abuse.
