Indian Ocean Gets First Winner

Grade III winner Indian Ocean got his first winner, at Calder Race Course May 16.

Indian Ocean sired his first winner May 16 when his 2-year-old filly Rate Shock, out of J Lo On the Go (by Swedaus), romped as the favorite by 8 1/4 lengths in a $32,000 maiden special weight heat at Calder Race Course. The final time of the 4 1/2-furlong event was :53.90 over a fast track.

Rate Shock was bred in Florida by her owner Chester Bishop. The bay filly owns a win and a second from two lifetime starts with earnings of $27,820. She is trained by Thomas Schell.

Indian Ocean, a graded stakes winner by former Bridlewood stallion Stormy Atlantic, stands at the Ocala-based farm for a fee of $4,000.
