The post parade for the Generous, followed by a short interview with winning trainer Dan Hendricks. Mr. Rod wearing saddle cloth #2.
Chantal Sutherland got her 4th win at the Hollywood Park Fall Meet aboard Mr. Rod in the $100,000 Grade 3 Generous Stakes.
Mr. Rod sped to the lead early, set the pace inside, then kicked clear in the far turn and held on gamely to prevail by one and a half lengths over Bittel Road and jockey Mike Smith. Hype and Bourbon Bay finished in a dead heat for third.
Mr. Rod, a son of Scrimshaw, is trained by Dan Hendricks for owner Cecil Peacock. He paid $15.60, $5.40, and $3.00.
