Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comAfter stopping in his previous race, Prosico did just the opposite Friday night to win the fifth event at Turfway Park. The 9-year old son of Siphon grabbed the lead right out of the gate and kept going. Prosico easily led the six furlong procession into the stretch and held off the second choice in the final furlong stopping the timer at 112.59. The $5,000 claiming race was for non winners of two races in a year. Felipe Villeda, a 10 pound bug, managed the winner like an experienced journeyman and gave owner/trainer Ronald Burch his first training win of 2012. Prosico paid a generous $55.20 to win and triggered a $19,000 plus superfecta. Purchased at auction in 2005 for $110,000, Prosico has now won 13 times and holds 29 in the money finishes from 52 lifetime starts. The bay gelding has career earnings over $220,000 lifetime.
