In rein to Brian Sears, Hawaiian Drink rallied from off the pace to score in the $585,000 Three Diamonds Final for two-year-old pacing fillies on Saturday night at Woodbine Racetrack.

The daughter of I Am A Fool got away seventh as Break The News (Mark MacDonald) took command of the field from Post 10. After the first quarter in :26.2, the post time favourite, Fred And Ginger (Tim Tetrick), glided to the front and posted the following panels of :55.2 and 1:24.3 as Hawaiian Drink tracked the leaders while following cover from third-over. With an impressive :27.3 final kick, Hawaiian Drink sprinted home for the mild upset at 6-1 in a time of 1:53.2.

Special Sweetheart (Jody Jamieson) was over two lengths back in second and Notjustaprettyface (Jason Brewer) was third.

"She was very good last week, finished very strong and had a lot of pace at the end of the mile," said Sears to WEG Media. "She was lucky enough to draw good, and I felt pretty good going into the race.

"I was about sixth or seventh on the outside and had all intentions of going forward because the track seems biased, you really have to be up close. It was a pretty good first quarter, and (there was) a little more movement down the back side. I ended up third over, but she had plenty of go when it came time."

The Tracy Brainard trainee has a record of 5-1-1 in nine outings with $417,330 in earnings for Bulletproof Enterprises of Boca Raton, Florida.
