Prosper: $1.7M Yearling With Sadler 2nd Time starter Record He’s Soon To Win

Four year old colt for John Sadler took awhile to get to the races, but he made it on Sunday off some quick four and five furlong drills. Six went to the post and this son of City of Light went off at 3/1 and broke sharply under Kimura to contest the lead. He dueled with another horse down the back side with quick fractions of 21.97 and 44.68 for the half. He put the other speed away at the ¼ pole, opened up a length, but the quick fractions started to take their measure. He still had the lead at the 1/8 pole, then faded the final furlong to finish 4th beaten five at the wire. Still it was a good race based on the fact it was his debut and he battled for five furlongs through very fast fractions. The race will do him a world of good and Sadler has a good record with second time starters. He cost $1.7 million at the Keeneland yearling sale. He’s a soon winner for a top barn.

Generally horses that are on the Horses To Watch list ran into unexpected trouble, bad luck, and/or didn’t run the race we believe Prosper was cabable of.  We expected that if Prosper gets a good trip in their next start than we should see an improvement in Prosper performance figures.  Use the performance figures earned in Prosper last race (listed above) and compare them to the field and pars of Prosper next start.  If Prosper appears to have earned higher performance figures in the last race when running into trouble  as compared to the rest of the field’s expected perfomance in the upcoming race than there is a good chance that Prosper will dominate the race.
