2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Handicapping
Named for one of the most accomplished sires of race horses in the past 40 years, the Mr. Prospector Stakes is a seven-furlong sprint run on the Gulfstream Park dirt course. The race is open to horses age three and older.
For 2021, the Mr. Prospector has drawn a competitive field of seven, some with previous stakes wins to their name, and others that are trying to get that first stakes win under their saddle.
Odds listed here are provided by the Gulfstream track handicapper.
2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Dennis’ Moment Race Odds: 2-1
In his career debut in 2019, Dennis’ Moment demolished the field by more than 19 lengths and branded himself a potential superstar. He then won the (G3) Iroquois Stakes and was made the odds-on favourite for the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.
A bad stumble out of the gate led to a last-place finish, and from there his career went off the rails. He went winless in his next four starts, only racing twice in 2020. But he comes into this off his third lifetime victory and second win in three tries at the distance.
He’s trained by Dale Romans, Corey Lanerie is the jock.
2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Endorsed Race Odds: 5-2
With just shy of $500,000 in the bank, Endorsed has had a pretty good racing career – he just doesn’t win many races.
While he has hit the board in six-of-nine starts in 2021, he doesn’t have a win in any of those. He just missed last out, finishing third by a half-length going seven furlongs in an allowance-level event at Churchill. Prior to that he was fourth in the (G2) Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland.
He’s trained by Mike Maker, jockey Tyler Gaffalione is tapped to ride.
2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Wind Of Change Race Odds: 3-1
Fourth in this race last year, the six-year-old Wind Of Change has arguably the most back class in the field, having made six of his last eight starts in graded stakes or stakes races.
He has been competitive in most of his races this year, with a win and three runner-up finishes in his last five starts. It is of note, however, that of his eight lifetime wins, seven have come on dirt tracks rated wet, something he’s not likely to get on Saturday.
He’s trained by Safie Joseph Jr., Edgar Zayas is the jock.
2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Free Pick & Handicapping: Doc Amster Race Odds: 8-1
Stepping up to take his first crack at stakes-level racing, Doc Amster comes in off a wire-to-wire win last out on the Gulfstream dirt going six furlongs in an upper-allowance level race.
In doing so he scored a career best speed figure that makes him competitive in this field, but he likely needs to run the race of his life to pull off the upset.
He’s trained by Jorge Delgado, jockey Chantal Sutherland will be in the irons.
Here’s My 2021 Mr. Prospector Stakes Free Pick.
We have to face the fact this isn’t the greatest of fields for a stakes-level race, as evidenced by the top three contenders here having only combined for two wins in their last 19 starts.
That said there’s going to be a winner and I’ll try for a bit of a price and take Wind Of Change to come out on top. On paper he’s really the only one with proven early speed and could get loose on the lead, which is always a good place to be in a one-turn race.
