Amalfi Coast Takes Rail Trip To Win Ontario Fashion

Amalfi Coast put in a last-to-first effort with a ground-saving trip prevail in the Grade 3 Ontario Fashion at Woodbine on Oct. 3, skimming the rail with jockey Justin Stein. The Kevin Attard trainee was last at an early call of the six-furlong contest, and was positioned for a closing bid on the turn. Jeannie’s Beepbeep, who dueled with Ima Beast on the backstretch, suffered a serious injury on the turn and had to drift to the outside rail as competitors navigated around her. Stein was able to guide Amalfi Coast back towards the rail to avoid trouble and find a hole to sneak by Ima Beast and hold off a late closing effort from Summer Sunday.

Jeannie’s Beepbeep was euthanized due to her injuries, according to the Daily Racing Form’s Ron Gierkink.
