Hollywood: Favorites dominate


Short-priced horses, including two favorites, have dominating the early races at Hollywood Park on Saturday, sweeping the early pick 3.

In the first race, Averoo, the 8-5 second choice, nosed out 8-5 favorite Red Alert Day, who had a few more dollars bet on him to win.

In the second race, the first of four six-figure stakes on the program, Ultra Blend ($3.60) rallied from sixth in a field of seven to win the B. Thoughtful Stakes, her fourth stakes win in her last five starts. Lady Railrider, a 6-1 shot, held second after setting the pace.

In the third race, the NTRA Stakes for maiden colts and geldings, On My Honor ($4) rallied from off the pace to win by a head over Kingpin Ryno.

The $1 pick 3 combining the first three picks paid $12.60.
