Prat Suspended Next Wed-Fri At the Spa

Flavien Prat | Coady


Jockey Flavien Prat will sit out next Wednesday through Friday at Saratoga Race Course after opting not to appeal a three-day “careless riding” suspension incurred there in race eight on July 14.

Prat was aboard 9-year-old Happy Farm (Ghostzapper) in a $50,000 claiming sprint. He got forced out soon after the six-furlong start, but settled in the seven path.

Prat guided the gelding closer to the rail entering the turn, then cut from the three path down to the fence in front of Thinkaboutit (Uncaptured), who took up sharply while Prat looked over both shoulders in the aftermath.

Thinkaboutit rallied to finish first at 20-1, while Happy Farm ran third as the 2.15-1 favorite. The Equibase chart stated that Prat's mount “came in near the nine-sixteenths and shut off the winner.”
