Triple Bend Handicap

The Triple Bend Invitational Handicap is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California. A Grade I event since 2004, it is contested on Cushion Track synthetic dirt over a distance of seven furlongs and is open to horses age three and older. Inaugurated in 1952 as the Lakes And Flowers Handicap, in 1979 the name was changed to honor Frank McMahon's colt Triple Bend whose wins included the Santa Anita Handicap and who set a world record time of 119.80 for seven furlongs on dirt in winning the 1972 Los Angeles Handicap at Hollywood Park Racetrack. In 1980, Rich Cream broke that mark with another world record time for seven furlongs on dirt in winning the Triple Bend Handicap.
