Uno Mas Modelo Our Pick in Mr. Prospector

Saturday's feature race at Gulfstream is the $100,000 Mr. Prospector Stakes (Grade 3) at seven furlongs on dirt for 3-year-olds and up.

Scheduled post time is 4:36 p.m.

The track is listed as fast and there are eleven entrants, with no scratches thus far.

Our pick to win is Uno Mas Modelo, the 2-1 morning line favorite.

This 5-year-old gelded son of Macho Uno is coming off a win in the Claiming Crown Rapid Transit on Dec. 1--also at seven furlongs on the dirt at Gulfstream.

Albin Jimenez has the return mount for trainer Anthony Quartorolo and  owner Loooch Racing.

Uno Mas Modelo has a late-running style, which should benefit him in the Mr. Prospector.  Three of the other top contenders  likely will battle each other for the early lead--setting the race up for closers.

Those speed horses are Coal Front (Todd Pletcher-John Velazquez), Kroy (Armando De La Cerda-Paco Lopez) and Conquest Big E (Donna Hurtak-Jose Ortiz).

Looch Racing and Quartorolo also have  entered  Storm Advisory, who could be a pace factor.  Robby Albarado has the mount.

Sweetontheladies is a likely long-shot who should be considered for exotic bets. He is a closer who has hit the board in multiple graded stakes. Regular rider Marcos Meneses has the mount for trainer Henry Collazo.

Predicted finish
1 --  Uno Mas Modelo (8)

2 --  Coal  Front (11)
3 --  Sweetontheladies (1)
4 --  Kroy (2)
5 -- WIld Shot (7)

Recommended  bets:
*$5 win and $5 show on 8

*$5 show on 1
*$1 exacta box on 1-2-8-11
