Hollywood: Ribald was unlucky


Ribald was an unlucky third in Sunday's sixth race, racing in traffic on the turn of a $10,500 to $12,500 claimer for non-winners of two and losing by a length to Cork Creek ($12.20).

Ribald was steadied while racing in traffic on the turn and rallied five wide to finish a length behind Cynical Wager, the 3-2 favorite who lost by a nose to Cork Creek.

Ribald was making his first start since April 2009.

Cynical Wager was claimed for $12,500 by trainer Doug O'Neill. Cynical Wager won a maiden claimer here on Nov. 12 in her last start.
