Tequilita skips Davona Dale to await Gulfstream Park Oaks


Tequilita, the upset winner of the Grade 2 Forward Gal on Feb. 4, was conspicuous by her absence when entries were drawn for Saturday’s Grade 2 Davona Dale Stakes. But trainer Michael Matz said he decided to skip the second leg of the local stakes series for 3-year-old fillies to await the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Oaks at 1 1/16 miles on April 1.
