Absolutely Cool, 9, at top of game for Hank Mills Sr.


PHOENIX – Absolutely Cool has always been a nice horse. As hard as it may be to believe, however, he might be better than ever now at age 9. Absolutely Cool looms as the horse to beat in the $35,000 Hank Mills Sr. Handicap on Saturday. The 5 1/2-furlong event is the final prep for the meet’s marquee event, the Phoenix Gold Cup on Feb. 13, and drew eight of the best sprinters on the grounds.
