Treble in Paradise – another MSW winner for Treasure Beach
As the fillies entered the gate for the third race at Thistledown yesterday, Treble in Paradise was sitting on the tote board at 4-1. When the starter sprung the latch, the daughter of Treasure Beach rocketed to the lead under Ricardo Feliciano and a few seconds later her odds dropped to 5/2. Treble in Paradise more than lived up to her price, leading every step of the way in the $24,500 maiden special without being threatened. She crossed the finish line three lengths in front, clocked in 1:06.66 for the 5 1/2 furlongs, and earned a check for $13,500. Scoring in her third start, Treble in Paradise became winner No. 8 for her sire, whose progeny earnings of $390,604 lead all Florida freshman sires.
