YOLANDA RETURNS AND WINS!!!
Yolanda B. Too made a triumphant return to the races scoring a strong victory in the "two other than" allowance on June 8th over a sloppy <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />
Trainer Rick Violette said, "This filly is as tough as they come. We know she's got talent, but for her to come back off a layoff like this and beat good fillies like she did tells you something. This race was no walkover. The runner-up was the filly that beat us in our debut. We just have to keep her healthy, because we are going to have all kinds of fun with her. I said before she ever ran that she was going to be a graded stakes winner. We've already been close a couple times, and I still think she's got a world of talent."<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Jockey Eibar Coa said, "I thought my filly might be in a little bit more of a tracking position, but she broke sharply. I just let her go a little bit, and then she came back to me. She was doing it all on her own down the backstretch. I didn't have to ask her at all. When she got up outside that other filly she just kept going. I had to get after her a little bit, but she really kept going strongly. I was able to just really ride her in the last fifty yards."
Yolanda's win keeps West Point Thoroughbred's hot streak going.
