Hollywood: Blanc shines in 3rd

Email

Jockey Brice Blanc rode a confident race on 4-5 favorite Cherokee Heaven to win Friday's third race, the first leg of a pick six that drew a pool of $98,558.

Blanc had Cherokee Heaven in fifth on the backstretch and waited until the final furlong before urging the 7-year-old horse, who responded well to win by a  half-length over He's a Dance Star. Cherokee Heaven was as far back as sixth in the stretch until he began to make up ground.

Quietly Mine was third in the field of seven. Cherokee Heaven ($3.80) ran six furlongs on turf in 1:08.78.

Sterling Outlook, who finished fifth, was claimed for $50,000 by Mike Mitchell.
