Romans Might Enter Medal Count in FOY

Trainer Dale Romans is leaning towards running Medal Count in the $400,000 Besilu Stables Fountain of Youth Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park on February 22. Owned by Spendthrift Farm, the son of Dynaformer rebounded from an unplaced effort in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) on November 2 to share win honors in an allowance on the Gulfstream grass on January 12.            

Medal Count has breezed four times since that effort, most recently covering five furlongs in 1:01.02 yesterday morning at Gulfstream.            

"I think we're going to run," Romans said. "He worked great going five-eighths. He's a good horse and does everything right."            

A $360,000 yearling purchase, Medal Count aired by 6 1/4 lengths in his off-the-turf debut at Ellis Park on September 1. He followed that with a close fifth in the Bourbon Stakes (G3) that was washed onto the Keeneland Polytrack a month later, and faded to finish 11th in the Breeders' Cup after racing too close to a fast pace.            

A large field is expected for the Fountain of Youth, which will offer Kentucky Derby qualifying points of 50-20-10-5.
