Hollywood: Gomez in time

Email

Orangeblackandgold ($3.40) overcame traffic through most of the stretch to take the lead in the final strides and win a maiden race over a mile on turf by a head in Friday's sixth race.

Orangeblackandgold turned for home on the rail, racing behind Sky Angel and Ricketyracketyruss. With no room between horses or on the rail, jockey Garrett Gomez guided Orangeblackandgold three-wide and surged to the front just in time, finishing in front of Ricketyracketyruss, who was a half-length in front of Flawless Jewel. Sky Angel finished fourth, a nose behind Flawless Jewel.

Orangeblackandgold was timed in 1:35.95.

Gomez has just two mounts on Friday. He also rides Queen Martha in the seventh race.
