The filly counterpart to the Florida Derby, the $300,000 Gulfstream Oaks (G2) featured a field of 8 three-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 miles on the main track. Davona Dale (G2) runner-up Grace Hall was sent off as the 6-5 favorite over 2-1 Zo Impressive, undefeated in 2 starts and making her stakes debut, and 5-1 And Why Not, second in the Pocahontas (G2) last out at Churchill Downs.

9-1 Yara set a pace of 23.74, 47.19, and 1:10.80 while stalked by 42-1 The Cat's All That. Entering the lane the pacesetters tired, as Grace Hall, 4th early, easily assumed the lead and drew off to win by 6 1/2 lengths over Zo Impressive in 1:49.36. It was another 2 3/4 lengths back to 40-1 Hearts of Red third.
