2020 Fountain Of Youth Stakes Handicapping
After a short one-week hiatus, qualifying for the 2020 Kentucky Derby gets back on track Saturday with the running of the (G2) Fountain Of Youth Stakes. The race has drawn a full field of 11 three-year-old colts, and one gelding, to race 1 1/16 miles on the Gulfstream dirt, chasing a share of the $400,000 purse and Derby qualifying points that will be awarded on a 50-20-10-5 scale to the top four finishers.
Odds listed here are from Bovada’s racebook.
2020 Fountain Of Youth Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Dennis’ Moment Race Odds: 9-5
A $400,000 yearling purchase, Dennis’ Moment was tabbed for big things from the moment he came to the track. He had an inauspicious debut when he lost his rider in his very first race, but came back to get his maiden win next out. He followed that up by winning the first 2020 Kentucky Derby qualifying race back in September in the (G3) Iroquois Stakes at Churchill. He was the favourite for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile last November, but stumbled badly coming out of the gate and lost all chance.
He’s trained by Dale Romans, and Flavien Prat gets the call to ride.
2020 Fountain Of Youth Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Ete Indien Race Odds: 13-2
Although he finished as the runner-up after setting the pace last time out in the (G3) Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream, Ete Indien was beaten by a very good horse that day and made a nice improvement in terms of speed rating from his previous race. He’s fast enough to compete here, now he needs to show a bit of improvement again to show he can get the distance.
Patrick Biancone is the trainer, Florent Geroux is the jockey.
2020 Fountain Of Youth Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Shotski Race Odds: 10-1
Despite the fact he has yet to pop off a plus-100 speed rating running on the deep dirt track at Aqueduct his last two races, Shotski did score a win in the (G2) Remsen and a second-place finish in the (G3) Withers. He led for all or most of those two races running 1 1/8 miles and so gets a slight cutback in distance here that should be of benefit to his front-running style.
Jeremiah O’Dwyer is the trainer, John “Johnny V” Velazquez will be the rider.
2020 Fountain Of Youth Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Country Grammer Race Odds: 11-1
The lightly raced Country Grammer (spelling mistake theirs) will be making just his third lifetime start and first in stakes company. He was second in his career debut at Belmont Park in October and then scored his maiden win one month later at Aqueduct. He’s been on the shelf since then, but runs here for a trainer who seems to have a knack for getting under-the-radar horse ready to step up and perform in big races.
That trainer is Chad Brown, he’ll team up with jockey Javier Castellano.
Here’s my 2020 Fountain Of Youth Free Pick.
While Dennis’ Moment had a legitimate excuse for his last place run in the BC Juvenile, the fact is he did run last in a field where none of the horses have come back to set the world on fire in their three-year-old season. I think he’s a vulnerable favourite here, and with some nice prices available on others I’m going to try and beat him. I’ll play Shotski for the win, and box him along with Dennis’ Moment and Ete Indian in the exacta.
