Top Billing on Target for Fountain of Youth


By Dick Downey

Top Billing is now definite for the Fountain of Youth Stakes, and Honor Code jogged at Gulfstream Park for the second straight morning after being brought down from Payson Park on Thursday.

“I wanted to get him off the deeper track, and I wanted to be around him, too,” trainer Shug McGaughey said of Honor Code. The ridgling recently sustained bruising in his back ankles while training for the Fountain of Youth Stakes.

McGaughey can't be definite about plans for Honor Code, but he's givingTop Billing a green light.

“He came out of his (Jan. 3 allowance win) really good. It looks like a good spot,” McGaughey said of the son of Curlin.
