Hollywood Park: Stretch run costs Pack Your Bags


Pack Your Bags was the 4-5 favorite in Thursday's sixth race, an allowance race for state-breds over six furlongs on turf, but could only finish second to Raetodandty ($8.60). A touch of traffic in early stretch arguably cost Pack Your Bags the win.

Fourth on the turn, Pack Your Bags was starting a wide rally under jockey Rafael Bejarano when Bejarano had to shift his mount farther outside at a pivotal point. The minor incident delayed the start of Pack Your Bags rally for a few strides and may have been the difference since lost by a neck.
