Rapid Proof brings the best form into Monday's $100,000-added Louisville Handicap (gr. IIIT) at Churchill Downs. But he must answer a major distance question if he is to defeat six rivals in the 1 3/8-mile event on the Matt Winn Turf Course.

Top 3-Year-Olds Clash in Fountain of Youth, Allowance Races

The blurry Kentucky Derby picture should begin clearing up Saturday, as a number of Triple Crown hopefuls meet to determine who makes that all-important leap forward. The grade I Fountain of Youth Stakes, which drew a field of eight, is split right down the middle, with four stakes winners facing off against four up-and-coming stars. And in supporting allowance races, two promising colts lock horns in a prep for the Florida Derby, and a former Coolmore colt makes his U.S. debut.

Trainer Shug McGaughey said Sunday that Maybry's Boy, a beaten favorite Hutcheson in Saturday's Hutcheson Stakes (gr. III), is still on track for the 1 1/16-mile Fountain of Youth Stakes (gr. I) despite his fourth-place finish in the seven-furlong sprint. Meanwhile, the Hutcheson one-two finishers are less likely to start in the Feb. 16 Fountain of Youth as their respective trainers don't particularly like the two-week spacing between races.
