Gunnevera proved a most visually impressive specimen in the 1 1/16-mile Fountain of Youth Stakes, motoring from last in the 10-horse field to win over grade 1 winner Practical Joke while even-money favorite Irish War Cry finished off the board.
Nearly ten years to the day since his sire signaled his brilliance at Gulfstream Park, Irish War Cry showed he could follow in his father's footsteps as a force on the Triple Crown trail.
Sonic Mule sat off the early pace and bravely turned back State of Honor in deep stretch to score in the Mucho Macho Man and earn his first triumph at the eight-furlong distance.
