– Mr. Prospector (G3) winner Officiating and Saffie Joseph Jr.-trained stablemate Sir Ollie, also coming off a victory over the track, head a list of 11 nominees to next Saturday’s $75,000 Sunshine Classic at Gulfstream Park.

The 1 1/8-mile Sunshine Classic will share the Jan. 15 card with the $75,000 Sunshine Sprint at six furlongs, each for Florida-bred 4-year-olds and up. Both races offer a $25,000 bonus to the winner.

Vesgo Racing Stable’s Officiating exits a three-quarter-length triumph in the seven-furlong Mr. Prospector Dec. 11, rebounding from an off-the-board finish in the one-mile, 70-yard Showing Up over Gulfstream’s Tapeta. The 4-year-old Blame colt also was a 3 ½-length winner of an off-the-turf edition of the seven-furlong Bear’s Den Sept. 5 at Gulfstream.

Peter Vesgo also owns Sir Ollie, a 4-year-old son of Quality Road that returned from a nine-month gap between races to post a three-length optional claiming allowance score going one mile Dec. 8 at Gulfstream. Tiger and Ampersand, who respectively ran second and third in that are, are also nominated to the Classic.

Also prominent among Classic nominees are Glenn Fagan’s Glory of Florida, in the money in 20 of 40 career starts including six wins; and the Arindel quintet of Chucky, Gump, Hercules, Key Biscayne and Tiger.

Officiating is also one of 19 horses nominated to the Sunshine Sprint, a group that includes David Bernsen’s Cajun Brother. The 5-year-old Cajun Breeze gelding won last year’s Sprint and ran third in the Gulfstream Park Sprint (G3) for prior connections before being claimed for $35,000 out of a Sept. 11 victory at Gulfstream.

Last year’s Sprint runner-up, DARRS, Inc.’s Extravagant Kid is a 15-time winner of more than $1.7 million in purse earnings who most recently ran second behind Carotari in the Dec. 31 Janus at Gulfstream. His biggest victory came in the Al Quoz Sprint (G1) last March in Dubai.

Legal Deal and Pudding, respectively second and third in the seven-furlong Claiming Crown Rapid Transit Dec. 4 at Gulfstream; 2020 FSS In Reality winner Boca Boy; Poppy’s Pride, winner of the 2020 Juvenile Sprint at Gulfstream Park West; Rough Entry, exiting the Nov. 28 Fall Highweight (G3) at Aqueduct; multiple stakes winner Shivaree and 2019 Texas Glitter winner Yes I Am Free are also nominated.
