I would say, yes it is a messianic prophecy. Although Hosea 11:1 had present day (at the time of it's writing and reading? The Holy Spirit affirms to us in Matthew 2:15, it was in Christ that it found it's fulfillment. Matthew 2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son. The Greek word for Fulfill, play-ro'-o, means: " of sayings, promises, prophecies, to bring to pass, ratify, accomplish, to render full, i.e. to complete; to fill to the top: so that nothing shall be wanting to full measure, fill to the brim; consummate; to make complete in every particular, to render perfect; to carry through to the end, to accomplish, carry out, (some undertaking) verify, be complete, end, expire, fulfill, perfect, supply" I think it might even be significant to add, since scripture tells us Christ was the fulfillment of Hos 11:1, even ISRAEL had it's fulfillment in Christ.
