Hollywood: January drought over


Elmer January, who trains primarily at Los Alamitos with a few runners on the northern California fair circuit, had his first winner at the major Southern California Thoroughbred tracks in 14 years when Emily Pearl ($13) won a maiden claimer for 2-year-old fillies.

Emily Pearl was second and third in two maiden races at the Big Fresno fair in October.
