Pin Oak Stud's homebred Cloud Scapes edged ahead of pacesetter Wholelottashakin in the stretch and narrowly won the $150,000 Endeavour Stakes (gr. IIIT) in her stakes debut Jan. 25 at Tampa Bay Downs.
Grade I winner Dayatthespa, making a rare appearance against New York-breds, took control in the stretch and held steady for a 1 3/4-length victory in the $150,000 Yaddo Stakes Aug. 16 at Saratoga Race Course.
Two weeks after being scratched out of the grade I Diana Stakes, Dayatthespa has been installed the 2-5 morning-line favorite for the 34th running of the $150,000 Yaddo Stakes.
Trainer Chad Brown, who experienced great success last year with female turf stars Stacelita and Zagora, now appears to have an emerging turf stakes filly prospect in Dayatthespa.
Back on firm ground for her first start of 2012, favored Dayatthespa swept to a 1 3/4-length win in the $100,000 Sweetest Chant Stakes on the Gulfstream Park turf Jan. 22.
