Oaklawn: Southwest for Yankee Passion?


Yankee Passion might have put himself in the starting gate for next month's Grade 3, $250,000 Southwest at Oaklawn following his sharp-looking allowance win in Thursday's eighth race. Trainer Larry Jones told Oaklawn media officials that the horse could run next in the one-mile race that goes Feb. 21.

Yankee Passion was making his seasonal debut in a first-level allowance at six furlongs, and he won in 1:10.88.
