Hollywood Park: Skipshot catches Sidney


Sidney's Candy looked like a winner with a furlong remaining in Saturday's Grade 2 Swaps Stakes, but Skipshot rallied late to win the stakes for 3-year-olds by a head. The lack of a recent start for Sidney's Candy may have taken a toll.

Sidney's Candy had not started since a 17th in the Kentucky Derby on May 1. Skipshot was making his third start of the meeting, having finished second in the Grade 3 Affirmed Handicap here on June 19. Skipshot ($10.20) ran 1 1-8 miles in 1:49.94.
