Saturday's 11th race (5:30pm ET) from Gulfstream Park is the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth Stakes for 3-year-olds traveling a mile and a sixteenth on the main track. 

#5 General A Rod (5-1) ran well in all three starts and his numbers are on the rise. The fresh colt owns running style versatility and new pilot Castellano does business with Maker. He is bred to go this far and should offer value.

#4 Wildcat Red (6-1) has a nose for the wire at the Gulf and this is the right time to try two turns. He just missed to today's rival General A Rod in the GP Derby and cruised in the G3 Hutcheson last time. He has some stamina influences on the dam side.

#1 Commissioner
(3-1) exits back-to-back 9f wins and beat today's highly regarded rival Top Billing by a neck here Jan. 3. The stalk and pounce type needs to improve his Pace Ratings while retaining his finishing kick and might run out of ground at 8.5f.  

#12 Top Billing (7-2) needs some racing luck as a late runner breaking from an outer post in a full field. He owns the best late numbers but won't offer enough value. 

#2 We Miss Artie (8-1) is 0-for-2 on dirt but did finish 2nd in his 5f debut and a competitive 7th in the G1 BC Juvenile. The G1 Breeders' Futurity hero earned an improved number in his turf route return and deserves another shot on dirt.

#8 Almost Famous (8-1) faded to 4th in the G2 Holy Bull and should be tighter 2nd off the shelf. He has a shot to hang in there for quite some time if he shakes loose over a speed favoring track.
