Grace Hall could make her 3-year-old debut in the Grade 2 Davona Dale on Feb. 25 at Gulfstream Park.

Trainer Tony Dutrow said his Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies runner-up Grace Hall is doing well and is expected to make her 3-year-old debut in the Grade 2 Davona Dale on Feb. 25.

“I’m super happy with her right now,” Dutrow said. “She’s been back with me at Palm Meadows since Dec. 1, but I’m still not sure when she’ll have her first workout. At the moment, I think it would be a mistake not to be pointing her to the [Kentucky] Oaks, and the Davona Dale looks like a great starting point.”

Grace Hall, a daughter of Empire Maker, won her first three starts, including the Grade 1 Spinaway at Saratoga, before finishing second behind likely division champion My Miss Aurelia in the Juvenile Fillies.
