Carried Interest Back in Action on Sunday

Klaravich Stables and William H. Lawrence’s 3-year-old Carried Interest showed considerable promise in two starts in New York last summer for trainer Rick Violette, winning his debut at Belmont Park in early July and finishing second to highly-regarded Overanalyze in The Futurity (G2) at Belmont last out on Sept. 30.

Carried Interest is entered to make his 2013 season debut in Sunday’s third race allowance feature at Gulfstream Park with Joel Rosario in the saddle facing five rival 3-year-olds in the ‘a other than’ allowance test at six furlongs.

“He’s very talented, but developed sore shins that became chronic,” said Violette from Ocala Friday morning. “We kept going (training) for a while but finally just decided to stop on him and give him plenty of time. He’s doing well. He’s very fast, but there is some other speed in the race. We’ll just see how it develops.”

Carried Interest is a Kentucky-bred son of Henny Hughes purchased for $130,000 at the OBS March 2-year-old sales.

Last season was bittersweet for Violette and his stable as he also had another very talented 2-year-old prospect in Klaravich Stables and Lawrence’s Spurious Precision, a son of High Cotton that won both of his starts, including the Saratoga Special (G2). However, he later broke down training in September for the Champagne Stakes (G1) and had to be euthanized.

“He was exceptional. It was a real kick in the gut. You just have to go on.”

One of Carried Interest’s major rivals in Sunday’s race will be Rick Shanley’s Pro Prospect with Edgar Prado in the saddle for trainer Eddie Plesa, Jr. Pro Prospect is also by Henny Hughes and was a $52,000 OBS March 2-year-old sales purchase and made two starts last year at Monmouth Park.

Pro Prospect finished third in his debut on June 23, a race won by Plesa-trained stablemate Itsmyluckyday, winner of the Gulfstream Park Derby and Holy Bull Stakes (G3) for Plesa and one of the likely favorites for the $1 million Florida Derby (G1). Pro Prospect came back to break his maiden on July 29 by four lengths.
