Charles Town track report


Rainbow Inthestorm, an easy winner in wire-to-wire fashion of his last two starts, looks like a standout in the $50,000 Tri-State Futurity at Charles Town.

The two-turn seven-furlong race is restricted to 2-year-olds foaled in Maryland, Virginia, or West Virginia.

Rainbow Inthestorm, coupled with the maiden Demi Is Smooth for trainer Dale Capuano, has steadily raised his Beyer Speed Figures from 53 in his career debut to 73 in his fourth start, a 2 3/4-length win over first-level allowance runners at Delaware Park.

If Rainbow Inthestorm doesn't take to the track or has trouble handling two turns, Standing for Peace or Binn Waiting are the most likely upsetters.

Standing for Peace won his maiden going 6 1/2 furlongs at Charles Town three starts ago and defeated nine other 2-year-olds in a 4 1/2-furlong stakes on West Virginia Breeders Classics night two weeks ago.

Binn Waiting has raced around two turns twice at Charles Town, including a fourth in the Vincent Moscarelli Breeders Classic. He's eligible to improve making his second start on Lasix.
