20-Lengths Win For El Nino Filly
In the US, 3YO filly Indy el Nino (El Nino-Ghostly Gate) scored by a tick under 20-lengths when leading all the way over 1600m at Fairmont. Indy el Nino is by Queensland's Merlo Downs permanently-based sire El Nino (Storm Cat-Bay Harbor, by Forty Niner) who is out of a half-sister to G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Boston Harbor (US Champion 2YO Colt). El Nino (standing for $5,500) is now the sire of 14 winners from his first 22 runners. Typically leading from pillar to post, his progeny are winning by big margins over sprint trips. In addition to Indy el Nino, other recent winners include:
- Doppler Radar – Duel Winner at Fort Eire (1000m) by 6-lengths, previous start winner by 8-lengths over 1000m.
- Joy Rising – Winner at Delaware Park (1200m) by 5-lengths.
- Senor Rain – Winner at Hoosier Park (1200m) by 3.5-lengths.
- Ziva Cat – Winner at Hoosier Park (1200m) by 2.5-lengths.
