HOLLYWOOD PARK

Stevens Is Still Riding High

May 05, 1997|BOB MIESZERSKI

Jockey Gary Stevens followed up his third Kentucky Derby victory with victories on his first three mounts Sunday at Hollywood Park.

A late arrival to the track after missing his first flight out of Louisville, Stevens won with Naninja in the fifth race, Majestic Number in the seventh and Karakorum in the eighth. His streak ended with heavily favored Tychonic in the Inglewood Handicap.

For the second consecutive year, Tychonic and Stevens were third in the Grade III race, and the winner was a European import trained by Jenine Sahadi and ridden by Corey Nakatani for Carol and C.N. Ray's Evergreen Farm.

Fastness was the winner in 1996, and El Angelo got the job done this time, winning by 3 1/2 lengths.
