Results, Hollywood Park Saturday Race 4 — lost $450

Rafael Bejarano pressed the pace then drew off with #4 Sweetpea

Rafael Bejarano pressed the pace then drew off with #4 Sweetpea

Of this bunch, she seemed like the most likely winner and #4 Sweetpea didn’t disappoint her backers as this 8-to-5 shot stalked the leader then poured it on in the stretch. 

In the betting, Sweetpea was the second choice to #7 Sindyfromsantacruz for most of the betting period. But in the final flash, Sweetpea’s odds declined to 8-to-5 favoritism. Sindyfromsantacruz ran a terrible race. She sat in mid pack and did not respond when jockey Tyler Baze whipped her entering the stretch.

As the race began, #1 Mum Z shot to the front and held the lead until the stretch. But that’s when Sweetpea came a-calling and kicked it into high gear. By the time she hit the wire, her widening margin had reached 7-1/2 lengths over second-place finisher #5 Lion Princess.

I bet $300 on #7 Sindyfromsantacruz and $150 on #1 Mum Z.
