ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Indy Point won the $150,000 John Henry Turf Championship by 11/4lengths at Santa Anita on Sunday, giving jockey Gary Stevens his third graded stakes win of the weekend.

Argentina-bred Indy Point ran 11/4 miles in 1:57.47 and paid $6, $4.40 and $2.80 as the 2-1 favorite against 11 rivals in the Grade 2 race.

Ireland-bred Vagabond Shoes returned $6.40 and $4.40, while Lucayan was another three-quarters of a length back in third and paid $4.40 to show.

The victory, worth $90,000, increased Indy Point's career earnings to $659,061, with seven wins in 15 starts.

Stevens won four stakes races on the weekend, three in graded races. His son, T.C. Stevens, won his first race as a trainer on Saturday at Churchill Downs, but the good news was tempered by Stevens' mother's stroke last week.

"That's really put everything in perspective," he said. "I didn't think in my wildest dreams though that I'd have the kind of horses I've had this weekend."
