Trainer Wesley Ward gave the thumbs-up sign at Gulfstream Park Sunday morning, one day after NOTONTHESAMEPAGE (Catienus) rolled to a near record-setting victory in the Spectacular Bid S.

The Ken and Sarah Ramsey Kentucky-homebred will now begin preparing for the Fountain of Youth S. (G2), to be run at one mile on February 28.

"He's doing great this morning," Ward said. "I always like to give horses some time after a big run. That was a big run yesterday. The Fountain of Youth will be great for him at a mile."

Notonthesamepage had lost three straight stakes to close out his two-year-old campaign. Respiratory bleeding problems became progressively worse as Ward tried the colt at longer distances, culminating in a last-place finish in the 1 1/16-mile Breeders' Futurity (G1) at Keeneland on October 4.

The chestnut showed no signs of those problems on Saturday, rolling to an 8 1/4-length victory under jockey Elvis Trujillo in 1:08.48, just missing the track record for six furlongs by .02 of a second.

"I'd always thought of him as a really good sprinter," Ward added, "but once he got those problems behind him, he's just started training so well. The Fountain of Youth lets us stretch him out and see how far he wants to go."

GOOD LUCK!! and have A GREAT DAY!!!
