Dennis Moment Fountain of Youth Odds

Dale Romans expects a good showing from Dennis’Moment at the Fountain of Youth stakes.

Dennis’ Moment, a Dale Roman trained horse, followed up two wins with a disappointing eighth place finish at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile in November. Since then, the three-yea-old colt hasn’t been entered in a race. However, with the Kentucky Derby a couple of months away, Dennis’ Moment is expected to return to the track at this weekend’s Fountain of Youth as he tries to pick up enough points to qualify for the Kentucky Derby.

“I feel good about him,” Romans said. “I want him to come out and show that he’s as good as I think he is. But I think it’s going to be a good day for him…. I’m very confident in him. I think he’s a superstar. I think he’s going to jump out there and run a huge race.”

All the same, he acknowledged, “I’ve felt anxiety about this horse every day since the Breeders’ Cup. It’s been a long four months waiting to get him back here to prove how good he is.”

Dennis’ Moment received a lot of hype before he took the track for the first time, but the hype has died down considerably since the Breeders’ Cup. With less attention being paid to his horse, Romans is hoping he can fly under the radar this weekend.

“He’s had four races,” Romans said. “Fifty percent have been perfect, but the other 50 percent terrible: The first time out when he stumbled and lost his rider and the Breeders’ Cup when he stumbled to his knees and had no chance. Those are the highs and lows of sports.”

Asked about Dennis’ Moment’s chances heading into the race, the stable’s racing manager Tammy Loutsch said, “There’s just so much unknown. I had so much confidence going into the last race, and you know what happened. We just have something to prove. He has to show up. That’s the way we’re going into this: He has to step up and show that he belongs at the top of the class. We’re hoping he does that. You really don’t know what to expect after being off that long. We hope he’s matured and developed into what we think he is.”
