Mr. Prospector (1970-1999) was a thoroughbred racehorse who won half of his 14 career starts, but whose descendants have come to dominate the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

An also-ran in the year the great Secretariat won the Triple Crown, Mr. Prospector's sire was Raise A Native, a son of Native Dancer and out of the Nashua mare, Gold Digger

One of Mr. P's most remarkable feats was siring one winner of each of the Triple Crown races, a feat his grandson, Unbridled, has also accomplished. His Triple Crown race winners were the 2000 Kentucky Derby winner FUSAICHI PEGASUS , a promising young sire; 1985 Preakness Stakes winner Tank's Prospect; and 1982 Belmont Stakes winner and Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year, Conquistador Cielo.

Died June 1999, buried at Claiborne Farm. Claiborn's cemetary
