Hollywood: Pedroza dominates pick 5


Friday's 50-cent pick five paid just $94, and jockey Martin Pedroza was a vital element for winning ticketholders, winning three of the races.

Pedroza won the first race with Balboa Bay ($7.80), the third with Warren's Blossom ($7) and the fifth with Streets of Heaven ($10). Twodollarstowin ($4.20) won the second race, while Make Someone Happy ($4.60) won the fourth race. The pick five had a pool of $245,709.

Pedroza's win aboard Streets of Heaven was the subject of an inquiry regarding a bumping incident in the stretch between Streets of Heaven and Boulder Creek, who eventually finished fourth in the $20,000 claimer over 1 1-16 miles.

The stewards studied the inquiry for about three minutes but did not change the order of finish.
