Hollywood Park: Bullfighter overcomes bad start, wins


Bullfighter broke slowly, stalked the pace and rallied between horses in the final quarter-mile to win a $12,500 claimer for non-winners of two by an easy 5 1-4 lengths.

The victory gave trainer Bob Baffert his 26th win of the meeting, moving him within one win of leader Doug O'Neill. The current spring-summer meeting ends on Sunday.

Bullfighter returned $3 as a heavy favorite. The $2 daily double combining fifth race winner Koolnquick ($62.20) and Bullfighter returned $122.80.
