Idyllic Beach eclipses is the sport's latest millionaire after her victory at Red Mile on Sunday.

With even-money favorite Blazin Britches breaking before the start, Caviart Ally brushed to the top after a :28.1 quarter, and was later relegated to the pocket after Tequila Monday moved from fourth to take the lead following the half, timed in :55.1.

Idyllic Beach, racing from fifth, angled first over moving into the far turn, advancing uncovered towards Tequila Monday through a 1:22.3 third-quarter.

Caviart Ally had room to tip off the rail in the stretch, shooting by Tequila Monday as she drifted off the rail. Room opened for Jaye’s A Lady to pace up the pylons, and she took a narrow lead before Idyllic Beach slid by to win. Caviart Ally, between horses, finished third, while Blazin Britches recovered from her break to take fourth.

Owned by Christina Takter, John Fielding, Brixton Medical Inc., and Marvin Katz, Idyllic Beach, by Somebeachsomewhere from the American Ideal mare Idyllic, won her 12th race in 28 starts.

Trained by Jimmy Takter and driven by Yannick Gingras, she paid $22.60 to win.
