Ya Gotta Have Soul cruises in Belmont allowance
RSS Feeds Saturday, October 02, 2010
Ya Gotta Have Soul pulled away in the stretch to dominate a seven-furlong allowance race at Belmont Park on Oct. 2. The 4-year-old colt is by the Darby Dan stallion Perfect Soul, and was also foaled and raised at the historic Kentucky farm.

Ya Gotta Have Soul stalked in third, just in behind a pair of front-runners for the first five furlongs. On the far turn, he swung three wide to go after the leaders. He got the lead near the sixteenth pole and quickly pulled away to stop the clock in a solid 1:23.07.

Ya Gotta Have Soul is owned by Charles Fipke, who also campaigned the Darby Dan stallion and Ya
Gotta Have Soul's half-brother Tale of Ekati. Their dam, Silence Beauty (JPN), is out of the top-class mare Maplejinsky and a half-sister to champion filly and millionaire Sky Beauty.

Ya Gotta Have Soul now has a record of 2-1-2 in eight starts, with earnings of $94,350.

Darby Dan consigned Ya Gotta Have Soul as part of the 2006 Keeneland November breeding stock sale, where he sold for $280,000.
