Hollywood: PVal loses whip, wins


Jockey Patrick Valenzuela won for the second time on Friday with Gibson Home Run despite losing his whip near the sixteenth pole of the six-furlong race for $22,500 to $25,000 claimers.

Gibson Home Run ($4.40) won by 3 1-4 lengths over Edgewick Road in the field of five, so losing the whip did not affect the outcome.

Earlier in the day, Valenzuela won the first race on Sassou, who led throughout a $28,000 to $32,000 claimer over five furlongs on turf.

Valenzuela roe Manofgold to a second in the fourth race, and has mounts on the remaining four races on the program.
