Yagli (foaled in 1993 in Kentucky) is a retired American Thoroughbred racehorse. He was bred and raced by prominent horseman and CEO of Gulfstream Aerospace Allen Paulson who also owned U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Cigar, European Horse of the Year and sensational winner of the 1991 Breeders' Cup Juvenile, Arazi, as well as 2002 American Horse of the Year, Azeri, among others.

A colt who developed late, Yagli began racing at age three but did not meet with much success until age five in 1998 when he won three Graded stakes races including the Hialeah Turf Cup Handicap [1] and finished second in the Breeders' Cup Turf. The following year, Yagli won three Grade I races at age six in 1999. [2] [3] [4]

Owner Allen Paulson died in July 2000 and Yagli was sold by the estate to a Stud farm in Brazil.
