Cairo Prince to Work this Weekend


By Dick Downey

Cairo Prince will have his first work back after his dominant, 5 3/4-length win of the Holy Bull Stakes this weekend at Palm Meadows Training Center.

“We plan on working Saturday morning after the break,” trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said. “Even though he’s working, we’re still pointing for the Florida Derby.”

Caiiro Prince wasn't nominated to the Feb. 22 Fountain of Youth Stakes. McLaughlin said he plans to record Cairo Prince going four furlongs.

“I’d like to see him go a half in :50-ish,” McLaughlin said. “We’re not looking for anything serious at all, just a maintenance work to get him back on the worktab. He’s doing great.”
