The Davona Dale Stakes – Grade II [KYO]
1 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $200.000 Filly 3 Year Olds.
1st Beat To The Punch, trained by Mb Stables
This grade one winning filly stamped her ticket to the KYO with a strong win. Always placed nicely from a good draw she ground out a half length win and looks every bit as good as she was last year.
2nd Sports Creek, trained by Estero Farms
It looks like a new trainer was all she needed as she returned to her DED Princess form with a gutsy second. If Estero can find some consistency with her now she may end up as a late KYO hope.
3rd Home Cookin, trained by Mb Stables
Flew late for a close fourth beaten less than a length a pretty good effort for a filly running only her fourth race. This may have been the best Oaks trial in the field, now it will be down to whether her trainer can get her in the race.
4th British Chai, trained by Mo Mentum Farm
Still a maiden but only beaten a length here, she is almost certainly the best maiden in the game at the moment.
