Winner of Tampa Bay Downs' 7-furlong Pasco Stakes, this son of 2012 Florida Derby third-place finisher and eventual Belmont Stakes winner Union Rags will be tested for distance. He most recently finished second to stablemate Candy Man Rocket in the Sam F. Davis Stakes, and then was separated from his fellow Mott-trained rival when that one went on to contest the Tampa Bay Derby.

Southwest Stakes

Trainer Bob Baffert seeks to add one of the rare 3-year-old trophies not in his Hall of Fame case when Spielberg ventures from California. The Los Alamitos Futurity winner was most recently runner-up on the road at Oaklawn in the Southwest Stakes behind champion Essential Quality. After west coaster Hot Rod Charlie won last week's Louisiana Derby, the Californias are flexing their muscle.

Fourth in the Holy Bull and third in the Fountain of Youth, he narrowed the gap between himself and Greatest Honour from 10 lengths to 3-1/2 lengths.

Though winless in 5 career stakes attempts, his best races have been at Gulfstream Park. Trainer Sano was third in the 2017 Florida Derby with Gunnevera.

Burst onto the scene during the Fountain of Youth Stakes Day undercard, winning a Race 5 maiden mile by 12 lengths. Sharp morning mover had hinted his talent prior to a troubled debut fifth-place finish when bet to favoritism. The Florida Derby will be his first race around 2 turns and first attempt vs. stakes-caliber competition. He takes over the Joseph stable's Florida Derby hopes for Drain the Clock, who tired on the lead in the 1-1/16 miles Fountain of Youth Stakes to be second-best behind Greatest Honour.

Fountain of Youth Stakes
READ & WATCH

Undefeated in 3 starts at the Gulfstream Park Championship Meet, Greatest Honour was a rallying winner of the Holy Bull and Fountain of Youth Stakes over 1-1/16 miles. He can become the first horse to sweep the FoY and Florida Derby since his Shug McGaughey stable predecessor Orb in 2013 (who went on to win that year's Kentucky Derby). Since the Holy Bull inaugurated in 1990 (previously known as the Preview Stakes), no horse has swept the Holy Bull, Fountain of Youth and Florida Derby.

Undefeated colt has won his 2 starts by 10 combined lengths, adding a Tampa Bay Downs allowance route to his debut sprint win against fellow Florida-breds at Gulfstream Park. He's faced only 7 rivals total in those outings and will be tackling stakes-caliber opponents for the first time. Trainer Casse won two-thirds of the 2019 Triple Crown with Preakness winner War of Will and Belmont upsetter Sir Winston, but has yet to win a Florida Derby.
