Neither has crossed the wire in front since notching their respective first graded stakes victories in the Mr. Prospector Stakes (gr. III) a year apart, but Speechify and Singanothersong hope to end that streak Dec. 19.
Multiple stakes winners Singanothersong and Weekend Hideaway each put in half-mile breezes Dec. 13 in preparation for expected starts in the $100,000 Mr. Prospector (gr. III) Dec. 19 at Gulfstream Park.
Nearly replicating the tracking running style he used to win an allowance optional claiming race Nov. 17 at Gulfstream Park, Singanothersong nailed down his first career stakes win Dec. 28 at the Hallandale Beach, Fla. track.
Angelica Zapata will try to register fourth straight stakes victory and first career graded stakes win when she faces a full field of fillies and mares in the $100,000 My Charmer Handicap Dec. 7 at Calder Casino & Race Course
Unlike 2009, when purses and live racing days were cut, Ellis Park reported solid numbers for its 27-day meet that ended Sept. 6.
