Hollywood Park: Free Flying Soul ends drought


Free Flying Soul ended a four-race losing streak since January, with a comfortable win in the Desert Stormer Handicap for sprinting fillies and mares in Saturday's fourth race.

Ridden by Mike Smith, Free Flying Soul ($5) ran six furlongs in 1:09.10, holding off Alpha Kitten, who seems to want more ground considering the way she was closing. Free Flying Soul won by 1 1-2 lengths.

Fund Raiser, a 4-year-old filly making her stakes debut, was third. Fund Raiser was 15-1 on the morning-line, was bet down to as low as 3-1 with 16 minutes to post and went off at 13-1.

Free Flying Soul won three minor stakes last fall at Santa Anita and Hollywood Park for trainer Bruce Headley, who was at home on Saturday because of illness.
