Larry Jones high on Yankee Passion

Yankee Passion will launch what could be a very productive 3-year-old season in Thursday’s eighth race at Oaklawn Park.

“We’re pretty high on him,” said his trainer, Larry Jones.


Yankee Passion heads a field of eight 3-year-olds in the $50,000 optional claiming sprint that carries first-level allowance conditions. Others in the six-furlong race include Philippe, a half-brother to Grade 2 winner T.D. Vance, and Mastman, a romping winner against Illinois-bred maidens at Hawthorne for trainer Jamie Ness.


Yankee Passion has raced twice, with both starts coming at Delaware Park. He won his career debut on Aug. 3, then advanced to a first-level optional claimer on Aug. 26. Yankee Passion stalked the pace in the six-furlong race and finished second, beaten three-quarters of a length.
