Hollywood Park: Alert! A favorite wins a pick six race


After Living Word ($159.20) scored a shock win in the fifth race, and Awesome Gem ($18) upset 2-5 favorite Rail Trip in the Hollywood Gold Cup, pari-mutuel order was restored to some extent when 2-1 favorite Cadillac won a six-furlong claiming race on turf in the ninth race.

Cadillac, who finished in 1:09.76, edged Majestic Diamond in the final sixteenth. He was the first winning favorite in Saturday's pick six races.

Sea of Pleasure finished a valiant fourth behind Cadillac, a noteworthy performace since he broke through the gate before the start and ran about 100 yards before jockey Joe Talamo pulled him up. Sea of Pleasure led into the stretch before finishing three-quarters of a length behind Cadillac.
