Keeneland September Sale Graduate and Champion Juvenile Good Magic Makes Sophomore Debut in Fountain of Youth

March 2, 2018

Keeneland sales graduates headline Saturday’s prep races on the 2018 Roads to the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1). 

Reigning champion and Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) winner Good Magic makes his highly anticipated 3-year-old debut in the Xpressbet Fountain of Youth (G2) at Gulfstream. Good Magic is one of eight September Yearling Sale alumni entered in the Fountain of Youth, which also includes undefeated Strike Power, winner of the recent Swale (G3); Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity (G1) winner Free Drop Billy, second in the Holy Bull (G2) in his last start; and the talented graded stakes-placed Gotta Go.  

Five of the eight fillies set for the Davona Dale (G2), also at Gulfstream, are September Sale alumni, led by Take Charge Paula, a winner of three consecutive stakes including the Forward Gal (G3), and Fly So High, who is making her stakes debut following impressive back-to-back wins at Aqueduct and Gulfstream.

Graded stakes-winning Keeneland sales alumni Dream Tree and Midnight Bisou continue their rivalry in the Santa Ysabel (G3) at Santa Anita. Dream Tree is undefeated in four career races, with wins in the Starlet (G1) and Las Virgenes (G2). Midnight Bisou has twice finished second to Dream Tree, winning the Santa Ynez (G2) in her last start.
