Mercedes Stable's fast-improving Indian Ocean made the four-horse Affirmed Handicap (gr. III) a surprisingly exciting affair, outlasting his more experienced rivals in a tenacious victory Saturday for 3-year-olds at Hollywood Park.
Although he will be saddling a horse in England on Saturday, trainer Jeff Mullins will hold a strong hand in a pair of graded stakes races that day at Hollywood Park: the Californian (gr. II) with Choctaw Nation and the Affirmed (gr. III) with Buzzards Bay.
