Hollywood Park: Wow, a winning longshot!


Red Door Drive ($23.60) held off a late run from Red Eye Express (ridden by the red-hot Rafael Bejarano) to win Wednesday's seventh race, an optional claimer over 1 1-16 miles.

Red Door Drive was the first double-digit mutuel return on the day. Trained by Bob Baffert, Red Door Drive won by a head, in 1:42.72. The 5-year-old horse has won 4 of his last 6 starts, all with jockey Martin Pedroza aboard. The sequence includes a head loss in a starter allowance at Santa Anita back in January.
