Rebalation Runs Down Nardini To Take Bear Fans Stakes

In November, the El Dorado Shooter Stakes for California-bred or sired sprinters was won by Top Harbor, who is out of stakes-winning broodmare Reba Is Tops. On Saturday at Golden Gate Fields in Berkely, Calif., Top Harbor’s older sister Rebalation won the “filly and mare version” of the El Dorado Shooter, the Bear Fans Stakes, running down race favorite Nardini in the concluding stages to pick up her first career stakes victory.

Rebalation, ridden to victory by veteran Frank Alvarado, sat off the pace before unleashing a ferocious rally in the final furlong. 7-5 race favorite Nardini skipped away from the competition in the final furlong and had opened up multiple lengths at that point, but 4-1 second choice Rebalation had enough in the tank to run down Nardini in the final strides. The official winning margin was a half-length and the six furlongs on Tapeta was completed by Rebalation in 1:09.62 seconds.

Rebalation paid $10.80 to win, $4.00 to place, and $3.40 to show. Nardini returned $3.20 to place and $2.80 to show while Tip Top Gal (off at odds of 15-1) paid $5.40 to show. 80-1 longshot J and K Express completed the superfecta and Carolina Mia ran fifth. They were followed in by Princess Vivian, Getting Sideways, Draw Me, Daffodil Sweet, Dee Gee, Square Peggy, Ima Happy Cat, and Hot Rageous.

Rebalation, bred in California by her owners Gordy Jarnig, Kenny Marshall, and Eric Schweiger, now boasts a rock-solid record of five wins, one second, and three third-place finishes from 11 lifetime starts. The 4-year-old filly has accrued lifetime earnings of $137,328.
