Oaklawn: Three straight for Holyfield


Holyfield was a cruising winner of Saturday's allowance prep for the Hot Springs Stakes at Oaklawn on March 20. It was the third straight win for the horse, who stalked the pace from the rail, angled out and overtook his rivals in the stretch. He covered six furlongs in 1:09.84, under Joe Rocco Jr. Holyfield returned $6.20. 

Holyfield began his win streak at Parx Racing on Dec. 21, when he took a first-level allowance sprint. He then returned to action at Oaklawn, winning a $35,000 optional claiming allowance on Jan. 21. Tony Dutrow trains Holyfield for Mercedes Stables.
