YANKEE GENTLEMAN’s southern cooking…

Undefeated filly HELLO AGAIN became YANKEE GENTLEMAN’S 5TH STAKES WINNER and  his 3rd stakes horse already in 2009.

$50,000 Dixie Belle Stakes
6 furlongs, Oaklawn Park

HELLO AGAIN rallied to win her debut facing Illinois breds at Hawthorne just prior to Thanksgiving, before capturing a first level allowance for state-breds at the same track on Jan 2nd.  Making her third straight start at 6 furlongs she rode the caboose in the seven horse field through a half in :46 flat, moving out wide for the stretch drive she launched a resolute rally down the center of the track and got up by a half at the wire.

Last week SOUTHERN YANKEE took the $50,000 Genesis Stakes at Delta Downs just days after GOLDEN YANK was beaten by a nose in the Grade 3 Golonel Bradley S at Fair Grounds
