Todd Pletcher’s promising colt Prospectus, who broke his maiden sprinting 5 1/2 furlongs at Gulfstream Park West last month, is among eleven runners that have been entered to race in a six-furlong allowance optional claiming race on Saturday at Gulfstream Park.
The two-year-old son of Uncle Mo showed a lot of promise in his debut, dueling through solid fractions of :22.72 and :46.74 before drawing off to win by 1 3/4 lengths. Eddie Castro was aboard for that race, but on Saturday, Prospectus will be ridden by the two-time Eclipse award-winning jockey Javier Castellano.
Prospectus will break from post position eight and is listed as the second choice on the morning line at 4-1. The favorite at 7-2 is Cat Tree, a Dane Kobiskie-trained son of Discreet Cat that finished second in the Buffalo Man Stakes at Gulfstream Park West on November 28th.
