After getting a brief period of time off, Flashy Bull enters the Fountain of Youth off a solid fourth place finish in the Holy Bull Stakes (G3) on February 4th at Gulfstream.
Flashy Bull's trainer Kiaran McLaughlin is optimistic about Flashy Bull's prospects, "We didn't have him fully cranked up for his last race. Our goal was to run respectably, and give ourselves the opportunity to move on to the next step. We did that, and he has trained superbly since then. He hasn't missed a beat. If we're good enough, then we'll be right there on Saturday. He's a real easy horse to get along with, but you have to stay after him a little bit in his training. He's sometimes a little lazy, so his last race should do him a world of good."
The Fountain of Youth Stakes on March 4th will be a big test to see how Flashy Bull stacks up to some of the top three year olds in the country. Post time for the race is 5:29 PM EST.
