Last Race: Grade 2 Fountain of Youth Stakes, Finished 2nd
Analysis: A solid 3-year-old debut effort for the him in the Fountain of Youth, finishing second to Gunnevera. He made a monster middle move around the turn to take the lead, but then hit the wall a little bit down the stretch. He could have been a little short, or he just may not like longer distances. That’s the big question that we’ll find out next time out, but for now, I think he has the talent and back class to stay ranked fairly high.
