Peras International’s lightly raced Yara tracked 4-5 favorite Grace Hall to mid-stretch in Gulfstream’s $350,000 Davona Dale Stakes (G2), then wore her down in the final furlong and scored her first graded stakes win by a neck. Overlooked in the Davona Dale at 64-1, the 3-year-old Florida-bred filly by Put It Back is a four time veteran of the OBS Sales ring, consigned by co-breeder Brambly Lane Farm to the 2009 October and 2010 January sales before selling her at the 2010 August Sale. Resold for $24,000 by Nickajack/Rey de Oros, Agent, at the 2011 April Sale, Yara now has two stakes victories, a 6-3-0-0 record and $363,920 in earnings.  under tack link
