Hollywood Park: Tough start to pick six

Email

Few pick six tickets on Saturday would have prominently featured the upset winner Hostile Reaction ($36.80) in a $12,500 claimer over 6 1-2 furlongs.

Hostile Reaction, ridden by apprentice jockey Jesus Velazquez, led throughout the race, and won by 3 1-2 lengths over Celebration. So Hottie, the 4-5 favorite, could only finish third in the field of six.

The pick six pool was $215,105, meaning that a potential carryover would be approximately $119,393 for Sunday.

Saturday's fourth race was Hostile Reaction's first true win. The 4-year-old filly finished second by a nose in a maiden claimer at Santa Anita in February but was ordered first place money when the winner, Sarabella Mia, was disqualified for a medication violation.
