HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) Mohaymen is still unbeaten after easing to a win in the Grade 2, $400,000 Fountain Of Youth at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.

Sent off as the overwhelming favorite, Mohaymen improved to 5-for-5 in his career after beating previously unbeaten Zulu by 2 1-4 lengths and returning $2.80 for the win. Fellowship was third.

Mohaymen was ridden by Junior Alvarado and finished the 1 1-16 miles in 1 minute, 42.84 seconds. He now has 70 points in the Kentucky Derby qualifying standings, more than enough to assure a spot in the Run for the Roses.

Mohaymen could face fellow unbeaten and Derby favorite Nyquist in the Florida Derby at Gulfstream on April 2.
