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.

Sounds like he is still on track for a start in the Rebel where he will meet a very talented Tapiture. Tapiture may be very hard to catch in the Rebel due to the mile and a sixteenth distance, but I promise you if this one is sent for the Arkansas Derby there will be no denying him if he is firing on all cylinders. Even though Honor Code has lost a lot of time due to his ankles Shug should be able to get him ready to roll come Rebel day where he will be able to pick up some much needed Derby points and experience.
