February 14, 2005|By Tom Keyser

Rainbow Blue, the Maryland-born pacing filly, was named standardbred Horse of the Year last night at harness racing's annual awards ceremony at Caesars Atlantic City, N.J.

Stabled at Harrington Raceway in Delaware, Rainbow Blue, who was 3 last year, won 20 of 21 races and edged Windsong's Legacy, who won trotting's Triple Crown, in voting for harness racing's highest honor.

Rainbow Blue is the second straight standardbred Horse of the Year bred by Winbak Farm in Cecil County. The Winbak-bred No Pan Intended won Horse of the Year last year.

In two seasons, Rainbow Blue has won 26 of 28 races.
