Fairplex: Pedroza wins on Semi Lost


A 4 1/2-length win by favorite Semi Lost in the $99,900 Pomona Derby gave jockey Martin Pedroza a record-equaling 48th win at the Los Angeles County Fair. Semi Lost ($5.20) swept from last to first on the backstretch, raced wide through the far turn, and dominated the about 1 1/8-mile derby. Cozy Guy was second, two lengths in front of second choice Lava Man.

Pedroza ended up winning a record 51 races at the meet.
