Hollywood Park: Three claims in first


The demand for inexpensive claimers continues. In Saturday's first race, the first, third and fourth-place finishes - My Aunt Fanny, Acute Velocity and Lucy Got Lucky - were claimed for $12,500.

My Aunt Fanny ($6.40) won the race over 1 1-16 miles by 1 3-4 lengths over Saint Cindy and was claimed by Victor Garcia. The 5-year-old mare has won 4 of 19 starts in her career, and 2 of 7 starts in this country.

Acute Velocity was claimed in a five-way shake by Steve Knapp. Acute Velocity was beaten 2 1-4 lengths, but was in traffic twice on the turn. Lucy Got Lucky, sent off as the even-money favorite, was clained in an eight-way shake by Leonard Espinoza.
