Hollywood: Lemou hangs on


Lemou, the 6-5 favorite, held off a late threat from 7-2 Tiz Gianni to win Saturday's first race, a maiden race over 1 1-16 miles on turf.

Lemou ($4.40) led throughout, and won by a head, finishing in 1:41.46. He won the first leg of a 50-cent pick five that drew a pool of $261,510.

The field for Saturday's first race was reduced by one with the scratch of Perfect Magic Man, who ran off in the post parade.
