all in Triple Crown

Joseph P. Morey Jr. Revocable Trust’s Hush of a Storm survived an inquiry and bested 10 other 3-year-olds in the $100,000 John Battaglia Memorial Stakes Feb. 26 at Turfway Park, earning 10 points toward the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve.

There are some similarities between the Jan. 30 Holy Bull Stakes and Saturday’s Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes — both are contested at 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park —yet there are huge differences in the two stakes.

Saturday’s $300,000, Grade 2 Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth Stakes at Gulfstream Park is the last major stepping stone to the Florida Derby on March 27.

Better late than never, the $750,000, Grade 3 Southwest Stakes will take place at Oaklawn Park on Saturday, awarding its lucrative purse and 17 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve qualification points 12 days later than originally planned.
