Ima Discreet Lady split rivals in the stretch and drew off to post a two-and-a-quarter length victory in the six furlong Yellow Rose Stakes at Sam Houston Race Park on Saturday, 25 March.
The hard-knocking daughter of Discreet Cat is now an eight-time Stakes winner, which includes four straight editions of the Yellow Rose.
Ima Discreet Lady sat off the pace in sixth, only about three lengths off the leaders as she raced to the outside of her rivals. Making her bid on the far turn, Ima Discreet Lady overhauled the leaders in the stretch and cruised to an open-length victory.

Ima Discreet Lady is out of Ima Three Blinger, a multiple Stakes-placed daughter of Too Much Bling. Ima Three Blinger has also produced the promising Ima Sky Traveler, a Stakes-placed four-year-old filly by Sky Mesa.
