Jungle Prince Works at Santa Anita

Jungle Prince with jockey Agapito Delgadillo

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."

He's been such a good horse in the past, hope he regains his form. Was always a classy runner.

Anonymous, Jungle Prince didn't get hurt, but he has been retired to a farm in Kentucky. I will let you know if I get any further news. Mary
