Itsaknockout
Itsaknockout (right) finishes second to Upstart in today’s GII Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park, but is awarded the win due to interference in the stretch!

Itsaknockout, was placed first after a Steward’s inquiry determined that heavy favorite Upstart, had interfered with him in the stretch of today’s (50-20-10-5 Derby Points), $400,000, GII Besilu Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park!

Frammento, was 3rd at 60/1 and Frosted, who did have the stretch lead at one time, faded late, but held for 4th!

Itsaknockout, earned 50 Derby Points off this win and can probably lay claim to 1 of the May, 2nd, Kentucky Derby gates this season.

Upstart, who earned 20 more derby points for his 2nd finish giving him a total of 36 Derby Points which might be enough for a Kentucky Derby berth this year!

Frammento, earned 10 points for his 3rd finish while Frosted, added 5 more points to the 8 points he already had giving him 13 Derby Points thus far this year!

(Winning Time – 1:46.28) * this might be the slowest winning time of any 1 1/16 mile Fountain of Youth Stakes in recent times, if this time is correct!
