Hold That Prospect romps in Correction

Funky Munky Stable’s Hold That Prospect earned her first stakes victory Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, leading from start to finish to take the $65,000 Correction in a 7½-length romp over Heaven’s Voice.

The 5-year-old daughter of Hold That Tiger, who was claimed for $30,000 in March, was never challenged as she popped out on top and zipped through fractions of 23.58 and 46.73 over the fast inner track. Turning for home under jockey Jorge Chavez, Hold That Prospect steadily increased her advantage over her four rivals and hit the wire in 1:11.23 for the six furlongs.

“She’s got plenty of speed,” said Chavez. “She’s quick from the gate and just decided to go, so I kept going with her.  She took the lead pretty easily so that was great.  It was an easy job for me today.”

Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Hold That Prospect returned $3.60 for a $2 win bet as she earned $39,000 in her second straight stakes appearance. In her last start, she set the pace but tired to finish fifth in the Garland of Roses here on December 5.

“I was confident she had been training very well,” said trainer Gary Gullo. “I thought it was a good spot for her and she always tries hard.”

Since being claimed, Hold That Prospect is 5-1-0 with earnings of $158,457. Overall, she has won 12 of her 26 starts with a bankroll of $293,192.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would win a stakes with a horse we claimed for $30,000,” said Richard Munk, managing partner of Funky Munky Stables, which earned its first stakes victory with the Correction. “I’m speechless.”

Heaven’s Voice, who stumbled at the start, closed from far back to nose out Fascinatin’ Rhythm for second. What Time It Is and Bright Halo (BRZ) completed the order of finish.
