Winning Prize won his first start in the United States, a Del Mar allowance race by four lengths on the turf. He stepped up to Grade 1 competition to face Wise Dan in Kentucky, finishing fourth in the Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes on Keeneland's polytrack after the race was rained off the turf. He made one more start in 2013, finishing third in the Citation Handicap to end his season.
