Mutazen an old horse learning a new trick


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – It’s not uncommon for a trainer to try a 3-year-old turf specialist on dirt at this time of year, looking for lightning to strike ahead of the Triple Crown. It is more unusual to see that same move made with older horses, especially a 5-year-old gelding such as Mutazen, who will try dirt for the first time in his ninth career start Wednesday at Gulfstream Park.
