Falling Sky Will Run in Fountain of Youth

Originally scheduled to run in the Tampa Bay Derby (G3) on March 9, Falling Sky was entered Monday in Saturday’s $400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park.

The 3-year-old son of Lion Heart is coming off a front-running victory in the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs on Feb. 2.

“He’s just doing great. He’s won over the track here. I think coming back in three weeks, if anything, could help him. He seems to thrive on work,” trainer John Terranova said. “We thought it would be a good spot to put him in since he came out of the Tampa race absolutely fantastic.”

Falling Sky was purchased privately by Newtown Anner Stud, James Covello and Joseph Bulger prior to his last race in which he successfully stretched out around two turns.

The Pennsylvania-bred colt had previously been trained by Antonio Sano, who saddled him for two victories in three starts, including a debut victory at Calder in November and an allowance victory over highly regarded Majestic Hussar at Gulfstream on Dec. 15. Majestic Hussar, who came back to win his next start, is also entered in the Fountain of Youth.

Falling Sky breezed a half mile in 49.94 seconds at Palm Meadows on Sunday in preparation for the Besliu Stables Fountain of Youth.

“He cruised the half, galloped out well and was hitting the ground great,” Terranova said. “He’s eating great; he looks tremendous.”
