Multiple graded stakes winner Prospective has been retired and will enter stud in 2014.

Prospective, a multiple graded stakes winner last year, has been retired from racing. Stud plans are pending.

The 4-year-old Malibu Moon colt concludes his career with seven wins from 17 starts for earnings of $719,130. He captured the Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby and Grade 3 Ohio Derby last year. He also won the Grade 3 Grey Stakes on the synthetic surface at Woodbine as a juvenile, and won or placed in four other stakes for his career.

“Prospective was a pleasure to train,” said Mark Casse, who conditioned Prospective for owner John Oxley. “He was immensely talented, versatile and sound. He possesses a great mind and outstanding conformation, key qualities that should serve him well in his stallion career.”

Bred by Spendthrift Farm, Prospective, who is out of the stakes-winning Awesome Again mare Spirited Away and is from the family of champion North Sider, was a $250,000 purchase by Oxley at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga selected yearling sale.
