Greatest Honour Preps For Florida Derby


Greatest HonourCoglianese

The continuously improving Greatest Honour (Tapit) continued his preparations for the Mar. 27 GI Curlin Florida Derby at Payson Park Saturday, covering a half-mile in :50.20 (3/21).

“He worked nice–his typical work,” trainerr Shug McGaughey said. “I think he bounced out of the [GII Fasig-Tipton] Fountain of Youth good.”

Greatest Honour broke his maiden at fourth asking at Gulfstream Dec. 26 and has swept the first two of three GI Kentucky Derby preps held at Gulfstream: the Jan. 30 GIII Holy Bull and the Feb. 27 Fountain of Youth.
