Steve Asmussen will also be represented in Sunday’s
supporting stakes race with Justin Phillip and the Zayat Stables’ color bearer
comes in to the six furlong sprint over the main track sporting triple digit
Beyer Speed Figures in his last two outings.
101 number he racked up last out was in the Grade 2 True North Handicap when he
was beaten only three-quarters of a length by the highly regarded Caixa
Electronica. Leading rider Elvis Trujillo gets the call on Justin Phillip.
Mr. Prospector Stakes has attracted a field of eight and the front-running
Royal Currier is also dropping down from the True North. In four lifetime
starts at Monmouth for trainer Patricia Farro, the 4-year-old son of Red Bullet
has never finished out of the money and has won once here.
Prospector is the prep race for the $100,000 Teddy Drone Stakes, which will be
one of the supporting stakes on the Haskell card.
