Saturday’s feature race at Gulfstream is the $100,000 Mr. Prospector Stakes (Grade 3) at seven furlongs on dirt for 3-year-olds and up.
Scheduled post time is 4:36 p.m.
The track is listed as fast and there are eleven entrants, with no scratches thus far.
Our pick to win is Uno Mas Modelo, the 2-1 morning line favorite.
This 5-year-old gelded son of Macho Uno is coming off a win in the Claiming Crown Rapid Transit on Dec. 1–also at seven furlongs on the dirt at Gulfstream.
Albin Jimenez has the return mount for trainer Anthony Quartorolo and owner Loooch Racing.
Uno Mas Modelo has a late-running style, which should benefit him in the Mr. Prospector. Three of the other top contenders likely will battle each other for the early lead–setting the race up for closers.
Those speed horses are Coal Front (Todd Pletcher-John Velazquez), Kroy (Armando De La Cerda-Paco Lopez) and Conquest Big E (Donna Hurtak-Jose Ortiz).
Looch Racing and Quartorolo also have entered Storm Advisory, who could be a pace factor. Robby Albarado has the mount.
Sweetontheladies is a likely long-shot who should be considered for exotic bets. He is a closer who has hit the board in multiple graded stakes. Regular rider Marcos Meneses has the mount for trainer Henry Collazo.——————————–
