HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Wildcat Red and General a Rod, the one-two finishers in yesterday's $400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park, will likely take their nascent rivalry to the next level in the $1-million Besilu Stables Florida Derby (G1) on March 29.

$400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth (G2) Quotes


Trainer Jose Garoffalo (Wildcat Red): "We proved that we were right, that the horse could get the distance. I thought (General a Rod) was the horse to beat and the race was a copy of the last race, the Gulfstream Park Derby, but this time I got lucky and I beat him.

"I was expecting him to be right next to or right behind me. Javier knows my horse, that's why he went after him very early. When my horse feels another horse alongside, he runs harder. Now we can think seriously about the (Kentucky) Derby. He never quits and he likes that - to feel the horse next to him. I was very confident at the wire. I knew that he was going to beat him this time. Last time, the post position wasn't good, but now it was a different story, thank God.

GRADE II RISEN STAR STAKES


Mike Smith (jockey, Intense Holiday, winner): “Well, in the very beginning he kind of slipped leaving there which turned out to be a good thing. It kind of scared him and he got up on the bridle which I wanted him to be but he was a bit too keen early. So when I finally talked him out of it he just completely let go and I was like ‘uh no, not that much.’ I asked him again and he jumped back on it again and I had to talk him out it or he would let go too much. There was a lot of room to improve there and a lot of room to grow. What I really liked at the end was galloping out, after I stopped him, you can tell when a 3-year-old has had enough. He took one breath and came back so we did not get to the bottom of him.
