First Starter Is A Winner For Florida Sire Neolithic

The first runner for multiple Grade 1-placed Neolithic, El Profe (out of Boston Maggie, by Boston Harbor), was also his first winner, running impeccably at Gulfstream Park today with an exciting wire-to-wire finish for first in the second race.

Trained by Angel M. Rodriguez and bred by Angel Hernandez and Jose Perez, El Profe sped to the front right out of the gate with an alert getaway, showed the way on the inside of the stretch, and continued to remain clear to the finish line earning a check of $28,550 from the $45,500 purse.

Neolithic is the highest earner by sire-of-sire Harlan’s Holiday. During his career, Neolithic earned a total of $2,278,028 with three wins, four seconds, and three thirds.

He placed second in the Grade 2 Hagyard Fayette Stakes and the G3 Discovery Stakes. He was third in the G1 Woodward Stakes, the G1 Dubai World Cup, and the G1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes. He recorded three triple-digit Beyers: 106, 102, and 100.
