Jungle Prince looked great returning from his work this morning at Santa Anita with jockey Agapito Delgadillo. He was clocked in :59.60 for the 5-furlong work for trainer Victor Garcia. It was the third fastest of 25 works at the distance.
An 8-year-old stakes-winning gelding by Sir Cat, Jungle Prince ran 3rd to Street Boss and In Summation in the Grade 1 Bing Crosby Handicap at Del Mar last summer. In his most recent start -- the second back from a 7-month layoff -- he finished 6th in the El Segundo Stakes at Hollywood Park on May 21.
According to co-owner Joe Sciarra, who watched this morning's work at Santa Anita, Jungle Prince is "pointing for a turf race at Hollywood Park in the next couple of weeks."
