Dubawi Heights Primed for Yellow Ribbon

Dubawi Heights top story

Dubawi Heights, the likely favorite for Saturday’s prestigious Yellow Ribbon Stakes presented by Emirates Airline, has been training forwardly for the race since returning from Arlington Park where she finished second after setting the pace in the Grade I Beverly D on Aug. 13.


“She’s in great form,” said Gordon Storrie, assistant trainer to Simon Callaghan. “She’s exactly where we want her to be, really. She came back from Arlington thriving and now she’s doing really, really well.


“I’m certain the ground will be in her favor, unlike it was in Chicago; it was a bit yielding, so we’re really looking forward to the Yellow Ribbon. The Beverly D was a slow-run race, but because she’s so relaxed, she was in front.


“It doesn’t matter where you put her. She’s got tactical speed . . . she’s very adaptable. She just got left with the lead in the Beverly D.”


Dubawi Heights, a 4-year-old English-bred daughter of Dubawi, had won four straight from just off the pace before the Beverly D, including the Grade I Gamely at Hollywood in May.


The field for the Yellow Ribbon, which goes as the 10th race: Turning Top, David Flores, 119; Cozi Rosie, Garrett Gomez, 121; Dubawi Heights, Joel Rosario, 124; Malibu Pier, Brice Blanc, 121; City to City, Mike Smith, 119; Private Affair, Hector Berrios, 119; Harmonious, Martin Garcia, 121; Cambina, Patrick Valenzuela, 121; and Medaglia d’Amour, Joe Talamo, 119.
