Upstart figures to be a strong favorite when he takes on seven rivals in the $400,000 Fountain of Youth (G2) over 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.

A dominating winner of the January 24 Holy Bull (G2) over the same track and distance, Upstart will face four rivals from that race as well as three new shooters in the premier prep for next month's Florida Derby (G1).

The Fountain of Youth highlights a stakes-laden card and awards the winner 50 points toward Kentucky Derby (G1) eligibility as part of the Road to the Kentucky Derby series.
