Hollywood: Bejarano extends lead

Email

Jockey Rafael Bejarano has extended his lead in the jockey's standings at the Hollywood Park spring-summer meeting after a three-win day on Sunday.

Through Sunday's eighth race on a nine-race program, Bejarano had 40 wins at the meeting, four more than runner-up Joel Rosario, who did not ride at Hollywood Park this weekend and is spending part of the forthcoming week riding the Royal Ascot meeting in England. Rosario was at Belmont Park on Saturday and traveled on Sunday.

Sunday, Bejarano won the second race with Mighty Caroline ($4.80), the fifth race with Itssultryinthecape ($14) and the seventh race with Bauble Queen ($9.40).

He has one more mount, Doughboy, a 6-1 chance on the morning-line, in the ninth race, a sprint for maiden claimers.
