Prayer For Relief Gets First Winner At Stud At Gulfstream Park

Savatiano’s strong closing kick down the stretch at Gulfstream Park made him the first winner at stud for multiple Grade 2 winner and Indiana sire Prayer for Relief, BloodHorse reports.

Under jockey Miguel Vasquez, Savatiano stayed in touch with the leaders, then swung five-wide to stage a steady drive and finish a length on top. The gelding finished the five-furlong maiden claiming race 1:00.36 over a fast main track for owner David Romanik and owner/trainer Ronald Spatz.

Savatiano was bred in Florida by SCF, Inc., out of the winning Imperialism mare Retsina.

Prayer for Relief, a 12-year-old son of Jump Start, stands at R Star Stallions in Anderson, Ind., for an advertised fee of $3,000. He began his stud career at Pleasant Acres Stallions in Florida before moving to Indiana prior to the 2018 breeding season.

Over eight seasons of racing, Prayer for Relief won eight of 46 starts for earnings of $2,277,948. His race record is highlighted by victories in the Grade 2 West Virginia Derby and Super Derby, as well as the G3 Iowa Derby and Prairie Meadows Cornhusker Handicap.

Prayer for Relief is out of the multiple stakes-winning Mr. Sparkles mare Sparlkin Lil, making him a half-brother to stakes winner Twin Sparks. His extended family includes Grade 1 winner Another Reef and Grade 2 winner Miss Sunset.
