GULFSTREAM PARK Race #14 (THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH STAKES (G2))
Saturday 02/29 06:10 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (DENNIS' MOMENT) (5-2) - This race lost a lot of its luster with the late scratch of #12 Chance It'. 'Dennis' is working fast since he blew the break in the Breeder's Cup Juvenile (G1) Nov. 1 at Santa Anita. An impressive winner of his prior pair, he can win this if ready.
2nd pick: #1 (Candy Tycoon) (8-1) - From the Pletcher barn, this colt moves way up in class in his first facing winners. An easy maiden winner here at this distance Jan. 25, he has the rail, is clearly improving, has room for upside, and think he's a factor at a big price.
3rd pick: #7 (Country Grammar) (10-1) - Much like 'Candy Tycoon' he's facing winners for the first time. A maiden winner going 9 furlongs at Aqueduct Nov. 11, Chad Brown has given him time off and has him working steadily and above average at Payson Park. It's noted that Javier Castellano is getting aboard for the first time.
4th pick: #6 (As Seen On Tv) (5-1) - Speedy colt has gone 4-2-2-0 so far and missed by a 'head' here at this trip in a stakes Jan. 4. Believe he'll be put right on the lead and he's a threat to go gate-to-wire if left alone in the first half-mile.
