Hollywood: Royal Tiger survives inquiry


Royal Tiger ($64.20) won Friday's fifth race in an upset, and then survived a five-minute steward's inquiry into her running pattern through the stretch of the maiden race for fillies and mares over 6 1-2 furlongs.

Royal Tiger led turning for home, but drifted out twice, causing runner-up Khendum to move farther to the outside on both occasions. Khendum finished three-quarters of a length behind Royal Tiger.

The stewards reviewed the incident but did not change the order of finish.

Royal Tiger was maing her first start for tariner Mark Glatt and owner-breeder Nick Cafarchia. The filly is by Hold That Tiger.
