The 2019 Fountain of Youth Stakes is Saturday at Gulfstream Park and features a field of Kentucky Derby hopefuls. Post time is at 5:30 p.m. ET. Before you make any picks, you need to hear what legendary handicapper Hank Goldberg is saying about the race. He knows more about horse racing, and that track, better than just about anyone.
If you put $50 on Goldberg's Preakness Stakes picks last year, you would have won well over $11,000. You'd be rolling in it if you put anything on his picks for the Arlington Million last August, as he nailed his exacta pick by fading the favorite to a huge payout. He also picked a 39-1 horse to show in the Secretariat Stakes, and that one paid off too. Last summer, Goldberg's picks won a pile of dough for his followers at Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park, as he nailed the top four horses in order, winning his exacta, trifecta and superfecta! He even won the Pick 4 at Monmouth over the weekend.
Goldberg also confidently picked Accelerate to take the Pacific Classic. The horse went out and won the Grade 1 race by more than 12 lengths. Those are just some of his successes after nailing the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.
He got the 2019 season off to a strong start by nailing City of Light to win the Pegasus World Cup, the richest horse race in North America. That race was also at Gulfstream Park, site of the Fountain of Youth Stakes.
On Saturday, we can tell you Goldberg is not going with Vekoma, a one of the top Vegas contenders at 7-2 odds. Vekoma has raced just twice so far and won them both, including an impressive victory at the Nashua Stakes. But this will be a very strong jump in competition, and Goldberg says the horse is not worth the 7-2 premium he's commanding.
Instead, Goldberg is very high on a MASSIVE underdog that has all the tools to put together a complete run at the Fountain of Youth 2019. Anyone who backs him could be in for a HUGE payday.
So what are Hammerin' Hank Goldberg's 2019 Fountain of Youth picks? And which shocking underdog is a must-back? ... Join SportsLine right now to get Goldberg's picks for the Fountain of Youth Stakes, all from the horse racing legend who was all over last year's Triple Crown races!
