Off nearly two months, Rainbowinthewest got a welcome pocket trip and converted it to victory in Wednesday's (June 16) co-feature at The Meadows, a $10,300 conditioned trot.

Rainbowinthewest was away first for Brian Zendt, but released the well-meant Tuesday Morning near the quarter. The six-year-old daughter of Andover Hall and Miss Milwaukee roared through the Lightning Lane to defeat Harness AM, also in the Lightning Lane, by a half length in 1:55.2. Tuesday Morning saved show.

Robert Rougeaux III trains Rainbowinthewest, who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $182,160, for Brocious Racing Stable and Lone Wolf Stable.

In Wednesday’s co-feature, a $10,300 fillies and mares conditioned pace, Amelias Courage A pulled off a 12-1 upset for Dan Rawlings, trainer Richard Perfido and owner Win Rhythm Stables. The seven-year-old daughter of Courage Under Fire and American Dreamer prevailed in 1:52 to vault over $200,000 in career earnings.

Elsewhere on Wednesday’s card, Allnight Micki (Downbytheseaside-Allamerican Coed) became the first two-year-old pari-mutuel winner of the year at The Meadows when she threw down a :27.1 final quarter to hold off Spitting Image (Yankee Cruiser-Janettes Image) in 1:56.4. Bet On The Bay (Betting Line-Whos Up Whos Down) completed the ticket. Dave Palone piloted the winner for trainer Tim Twaddle, who owns with Micki Rae Stables.

Chris Shaw collected three wins on the 13-race card.

One winning ticket took down the Super Hi-5, returning $14,468.88.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday (June 17), when the 13-race program features a $1,224.31 carryover in the Pick-5 (races 8-12). First post is 12:45 p.m.
