Hollywood Park: Baffert has some luck on Wednesday


Trainer Bob Baffert, whose Kentucky Derby hope Lookin at Lucky drew the unfavorable rail post on Wednesday, had a brighter piece of luck at Hollywood Park when Bonnie Blue Flag rallied three-wide on the turn to win an allowance race for 3-year-olds fillies over 1 1-16 miles.

Ridden by Martin Garcia, Bonnie Blue Flag stalked the pace and drew off to win by 3 1-2 lengths over Ghost Girl. Bonnie Blue Flag was timed in 1:44.18. Owned by Peachtree Stable, Bonnie Blue Flag beat maidens in her preceding start, over a mile at Santa Anita on April 4. She could start in a stakes in coming weeks, possibly the $150,000 Hollywood Oaks on June 6.
