Fountain of Youth Stakes

March is upon us & now the serious Derby preps will begin. Here is our analysis of the race:

1-He Takes Charge  just broke his maiden after his fifth try earning a 93 bris speed figure ~ he’s 3-1-1-1 at GP ~ Tyler Gaffalione rides for Mark Casse they are 2/2 over last 14 days ~ will be used underneath on all of our tickets

2-Free Drop Billy  ran a credible second to Audible in the Holy Bull earning a 99 bris speed figure ~ trained by Dale Romans & ridden by Robby Albarado ~ will be used underneath

3-Peppered  he’s been competitive on AW surface ~ his first attempt on dirt was less than stellar ~ has been working well recently will pass on him here

4-Strike Power  a perfect 2/2 lifetime and 2/2 at GP ~ his bris speed figures have been 103 & 98 ~ Mark Hennig trains his horses have been spectacular as of late ~ he looks to be the speed of the speed in here may not look back ~ he is our top choice

5-Storm Runner  he ran a career best bris speed figure 102 in his last start ~ he’s part of the Dale Romans trio ~ don’t expect much from this one

6-Good Magic  hasn’t been seen in a race in 119 days ~  his lone victory in the BC Juvenile has many so called experts anointing him as the Derby favorite ~ he did earn a 105 bris speed figure in the Juvenile ~ Magic was purchased for $1 million dollars KEESEP 2016 & was unveiled August 24th at Saratoga where he failed at .75 to the dollar running second ~ his works on 1/21 & 1/28 were good 4 breezes since them were just average ~ will most likely be the post time favorite but won’t be on top on our tickets

7-Gotta Go  has 2 career victories both of them at CD ~ did run second to Strike Power earning a 94 bris speed figure ~ if all the speed in this race collapses could get a dream trip & upset at a nice price ~ our saver

8-Marconi  all 3 of his starts have been at Aqueduct has 1 win ~ trained by Todd Pletcher ~ don’t expect much from him in here

9-Machismo  ran lights out in his last start breaking his maiden earning a 99 bris speed figure ~ his game is on the engine will have to get by Strike Power ~ could be asking a bit much in here

10-Promises Fulfilled  his game is speed ~ will be hard pressed from post 10 ~ we don’t expect much from him today

4 of the 10 entered have a win over the track ~ Strike Power has 2 ~ quite a bit of speed signed on in here~

Final analysis: Strike Power is our top choice both of his starts he’s just been so impressive he reminds me of Audible but could be even better than him ~ our saver is Gotta Go if the speed melts down & that’s quite possible this guy could light up the tote at a big mutuel

Exacta:  4/1,2,7  Saver exacta:  7/1,2,4   Triple: 4/1,2,7/1,2,6,7   Saver triple:  7/1,2,4/1,2,4,6  Superfecta:  4,7/1,2,4,7/1,2,4,6,7/1,2,4,5,6,7,8
