Results, Hollywood Park Sunday Race 3 — no bets

Trainer John Sadler and jockey Joel Rosario teamed up on #9 I Swear

Trainer John Sadler and jockey Joel Rosario teamed up on #9 I Swear

When trainer John Sadler names jockey Joel Rosario as his rider, bettors should take notice.

Coming into Sunday’s third race, Rosario had won with 30 of the last 137 horses that he rode for Sadler and horseplayers who bet them all got back $1.51 for every dollar they bet.

In this race, Sadler gave Rosario a leg up on #9 I Swear, a 5-to-2 shot who was running in her third lifetime start. She was slow to start and Rosario was content to lay eight lengths off the pace on the backstretch.

As #2 Parker’s Stormgirl and #6 Wild Heart battled for the lead on the turn, I Swear started her run and moved up four-wide entering the stretch. When the speed collapsed, it became a race between #5 Youknowwhatilike and I Swear — and I Swear prevailed by a length.

I was planning on betting #6 Wild Heart at 2/1 or more, but the Bob Baffert-trained filly was hammered down to 3/2, which was too low for a wager.
