Phosy`s race did not go today nor did it come up as an extra tomorrow . The next allowance is Sat March 7th so will aim for that unless an extra comes up during the week at Gulfstream

Mr. Fantasy worked another sharp half-mile in preparation for the G3 $250,000 Gotham Stakes Saturday March 7th at Aqueduct Racetrack. According to Kiaran's assistant Artie Magnuson, the track had a little bit of moisture in it this morning, but Mr. Fantasy could not have been any more impressive. He went off in :12.1, meaning he covered the final three furlongs in an impressive :35.4. He galloped out five furlongs in 1:00 flat. This will be his final official workout prior to the race next Saturday.

According to Artie, "We're ready."

Below is taken from Coundown to the Crown week 6 by J.Plonk on ESPN

One horse who already is buzzing up the charts is New York-bred MR. FANTASY (Equibase past performances here), who has the performances to back up his catchy name. We wrote that his maiden win was superstar-hinting in this year's inaugural "Countdown," and I'm convinced that's where he's headed. Kiaran McLaughlin's second-time starter turned in the best allowance race in America this year, hands-down, with Sunday's 1 1/16 miles promenade at Aqueduct. State-breds or not, you had to be impressed to see a horse make the lead from post 10 with ease while being restrained, not gunned. The son of E Dubai is a half-brother to G2 Indiana Derby winner Tin Cup Chalice and appears to have much more brilliance than big bro. MR. FANTASY spurts when asked, like a push-button horse should, and cornered magnificently on the far turn of his two-turn unveiling. And his lineage links back to none other than Silky Sullivan, even if MR. FANTASY's natural speed is the polar opposite of that historic runner.

Allowance Race
1. MR. FANTASY -- Aqueduct 2/1 * NEW *
2. FREE COUNTRY -- Gulfstream 1/8
3. THEREGOESJOJO -- Gulfstream 1/10
4. SHAFTED -- Santa Anita 1/2
5. DANCE CALLER -- Oaklawn 2/1 * NEW *

Mr Fantasy Wins

It was a awkward start horses 7&9 were playing up in the stalls . Mr Fantasy seemed to have his head cocked and stumbled a little at the opening of the gate but he was soon into his stride and eased his way to the front and thats where he stayed . Mig just eased him around he said he did not really have to ride him .. so hopefully he will come out of the race in good health and be ready for stakes company in "The Gotham ..."
