Silver Wagon, winning last year's Hopeful Stakes.
Silver Wagon, who missed some training last week due to a foot bruise, returned to the track in fine form Monday, working a strong mile in 1:41 4/5 at Calder Race Course. The second fastest breeze of the day among five horses working that distance was the 1:47 4/5 clocking of Flo Rose 'n Net.
Winner of the 2003 Hopeful Stakes (gr. I), the 3-year-old son of Wagon Limit
may have earned a starting berth in Saturday's Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. II) at Gulfstream Park.
Trainer Ralph Ziadie said a Fountain of Youth decision would be made after he confers with representatives of owner Buckram Oak Farm on Monday or Tuesday.
In two starts since his autumn break, Silver Wagon has finished second and third, both in races won by Second of June.
