Indiano Takes Another Crack at Mr. Prospector

Stud El Aguila’s 4-year-old Indiano, third and beaten a half length by Apriority in last year's $100,000 Mr. Prospector, will get a chance to improve on that result in next Saturday’s edition of the six-furlong dash.

A son of Indian Charlie, Indiano has made only three starts since the Dec. 31 Mr. Prospector, punctuated by two significant layoffs. The first went from the Mr. Prospector until July when he finished second to Gantry in the Smile Sprint Handicap (G2) at Calder before following that up with a victory in the Giant Ryan overnight stakes there on Aug. 4. He was sidelined again until Dec. 8 when he finished second last out in the Pelican Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.


“The first layoff was because he had a long campaign and we decided he needed four or five months off,” said Wolfson. “The second was because of a bad lung infection that took time to get over. He ran a big race in Tampa off just four works.”


When not sidelined, Indiano has a highly-consistent record of 16-9-4-2 for earnings of $427,000. After winning the first five starts of his career in Panama he came to Wolfson at Calder early in 2011 and made his first two starts here at Gulfstream, finishing second in an allowance race in March and second to Travelin Man in the Swale Stakes (G2) in April.


Wolfson also will have a starter in Sunday’s $100,000 Ocala Stakes for Florida-bred fillies and mares at one mile with Miller Racing LLC’s 6-year-old mare Golden Mystery. The daughter of Awesome Again finished a good second last out behind heavy favorite Dust and Diamonds in the Sugar Swirl Stakes (G3) going six furlongs here on Dec.8.
