@SplunkDash  Try this works only for sample events provided having fixed spaces and Alpha-numeric.

TIME_PREFIX = ^INFORMATION:\w+\s\w+\s\w+\s+\w+\s\w+\s

Thank you so much appreciated. What about if I use


Since # of words are not the same, but there always "at+\s" before the Date/Time. But, please let me know if you have any recommendation other than this.
