HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Stella Perdomo’s 10-year-old German-bred Musketier and Haras Santa Maria de Araras’ 7-year-old Simmard are proven long-distance turf stakes performers for trainer Roger Attfield over several seasons. They look like the horses to beat in a wide-open field of 10 drawn for Sunday’s $150,000 Mac Diarmida Stakes to be run at 1 3/8 miles on turf.
Chadds Ford Stable’s Union Rags and Starlight Racing’s Algorithms are widely-regarded as the one-two choices for the Kentucky Derby (G1) and they will be the favorites in a field of eight 3-year-olds drawn for Sunday’s $400,000 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) going 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park, easily the strongest field assembled so far this season on the Triple Crown trail.

Robert LaPenta’s 3-year-old Casual Trick was a big disappointment to his connections and fans when retiring to eighth of nine as the favorite in a very deep 1 1/16 miles allowance race at Gufstream Park on Jan. 29 won by El Padrino, but will get a chance to redeem himself in next Sunday’s $400,000 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) over the track and distance, according to trainer Nick Zito.
