Holy Bull winner Booklet, breezed a sharp 5 furlongs in 1:00 3/5 Friday at Gulfstream Park in preparation for the Feb. 16 Fountain of Youth Stakes. The smallish son of Notebook, who was purchased by John and Debby Oxley prior to the Holy Bull, has won five of his six career starts, including the In Reality division of the Florida Stallion Stakes and the Dover Stakes at Delaware Park."I was happy with the way he worked," trainer John Ward said.
