Ekati's Phaeton (Tale of Ekati) gained a measure of revenge on Saturday when taking the $200,000 Davona Dale S. (G2) at Gulfstream Park by a neck over Birdatthewire (Summer Bird) after finishing fourth to that rival in the Forward Gal S. (G2) in late January.
It turned out to be a three-horse photo on the wire, as stakes debuter Eskenformoney (Eskendereya) was just another neck behind in third.
Ekati's Phaeton completed a mile over the fast dirt in 1:37 3/5 with Luis Saez aboard to earn her second graded score. The Bill Kaplan pupil captured the Old Hat S. (G3) to kick off her three-year-old campaign on January 3.
