Gunnevera – winning the 2017 GII Fountain of Youth Stakes

Gunnevera, who was sitting dead last halfway down the back stretch did what any son good of Dialed In would do over this Gulfstream main track as he rallied up quickly 4 wide on the far turn to snag a lead near the top of stretch then rolled home to 5 3/4 lengths and widening win over Practical Joke and the front-running Three Rules, who were just heads apart for 2nd and 3rd respectively with Talk Logistics, filling out today’s super for you!

The 2/5 post time favorite in Irish War Cry, could do no better than a very distance 7th finish in this important 2017 Kentucky Derby prep race.

Gunnevera, now with 64 Kentucky Derby Points is the new king of the Derby Points leaderboard this week and gains a May 6th berth into this season’s GI Kentucky Derby off this impressive win.
