INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Richwoman remained unbeaten after two starts with a sharp win in Saturday's $71,765 Cinderella Stakes at Hollywood Park.

Giving jockey Shaun Bridgmohan his first stakes win at Hollywood, Richwoman ($5.40) rallied from third to win by 2 1-4 lengths over 26-1 Sharoana. Lost on Champagne finished third in the field of nine 2-year-old fillies.

Richwoman finished 5 1-2 furlongs in 1:04.39. She stalked Sharoana through fractions of 21.52 and 45.27 seconds before taking the lead. Race favorite Maria's Quest finished seventh. She stumbled on the turn when racing behind Richwoman.

Trained by Steve Asmussen for Heiligbrodt Racing Stable, Richwoman beat maidens in her debut at Keeneland in April. She has earned 67,835.

Asmussen indicated that Richwoman will be pointed for the $100,000 Debutante Stakes at Churchill Downs on July 8.
