With a strong third place finish in the Fountain of Youth I will keep him in the number one spot. Though he didn't earn many Derby points with that start he ran his race though he lost there was no possible way he could win that race the way the track was playing. The horses that finished in front of him both looked dog tired and will be much easier to catch in the Florida Derby if that is where Shug decides to send this very talented son of Curlin.

He moves to number one this week because I'm starting to get worried about Honor Code missing training due to his bruised ankles. Top Billing's next race will be the Fountain Of Youth Stakes if he gets a bit of a better pace in front of him expect him to win by many. He may not even need a good pace in front of him to win the Fountain Of Youth. He will get a rematch with Comissioner and I expect it to be a good race and I fully expect him to prove my belief in him. With him being by Curlin out of an A.P Indy mare this one will run all day and with the Derby trail seemingly packed with speed horses this year this one will come rolling and pick up the pieces.
