Prado gets first stakes win of spring

April 10, 1993|By Ross Peddicord | Ross Peddicord,Staff Writer

Edgar Prado scored his first stakes victory of the current Pimlico Race Course meet yesterday when he guided front-running Jericho's Prospect to a nose victory over long shot Captain's Champ in the Sly Fox Stakes.

Jericho's Prospect, a 3-year-old son of Allen's Prospect, cost $14,000 as a yearling at the Timonium sales and is owned by Dr. Philip Torsney, who has campaigned such stakes winners as Horatius, My Frenchman and Apparitiontofollow.

Smart'N Tough finished third. Favored Mighty Game ran last in the six-horse field.

"I don't know why he didn't run better," said jockey Clarence "Jo Jo" Ladner about Mighty Game. "He made a little run and that was it. I just don't know what happened."

Multiple-stakes winner Silver Tango heads today's Primonetta Handicap. The Blue Grass Stakes, California Derby and Oaklawn Handicap will be simulcast at Pimlico.
