Hollywood: 3 weeks later, 'Mary' wins


Chokecherymary, who was literally left in the gate on April 23, beat maidens in a six-furlong dash in Saturday's sixth race, catching 13-1 pacesetter Hey I'm Sobaa in the final furlong.

Ridden by Chantal Sutherland, Chokecherymary ($13.20) was timed in 1:11.09, winning by 2 1-4 lengths.

On April 23, Chokecherymary was being loaded in the gate when starter Gary Brinson started the field without her. An assistant starter was standing in Chokecherymary's stall, preparing to climb on the adjacent ledge, when the race began. Chokecherymary was scratched and all bets on her were refunded.

Trained by Gary Mandella, Chokecherymary made her second start on Saturday, having finished fourth in a maiden race at Santa Anita on April 3.
