Prove Out

Prove Out (1969-1990) was an American thoroughbred racehorse who, under the training of H. Allen Jerkens, scored a 16:1 upset victory over Secretariat in the 1973 Woodward Stakes.[1] Prove Out also defeated Secretariat’s stablemate, the 1972 Kentucky Derby winner Riva Ridge, in the 1973 Jockey Club Gold Cup.[2]

Prove Out only won another stakes race, the 1974 Grey Lag Handicap, and was later retired to stud. He was the broodmare sire of the champion filly Miesque.[2]
