High Fly one to beat in Fountain of Youth


High Fly will be the one to beat when he breaks from post 7 under jockey Jerry Bailey in Saturday's Grade 2, $300,000 at Gulfstream Park.

Run at 1 1/8 miles for the first time in its 59-year history, the Fountain of Youth will have a field of 11 3-year-olds, including likely second-choice Bandini, who drew post 8 and will be ridden by John Velazquez.
