Den's Legacy and Travesura raced to half-length victories in a pair of $100,000 races at Betfair Hollywood Park on Saturday.

Ridden by Garrett Gomez, Den's Legacy covered a mile in 1 minute, 36.32 seconds to win the Generous Stakes for 2-year-olds. He returned $4.60 for a $2 win bet. Rising Legend was second and Shining Copper third.

The win was Gomez's fifth since Friday, which included the $250,000 Citation Handicap with Data Link.

''I knew this horse would go through wherever I pointed him,'' Gomez said of Den's Legacy. ''He was hitting the hole that wasn't there yet.''

Meanwhile, Travesura held off 9-1 shot Pussycat Lips and 5-2 second choice Flashy Ways to win the Miesque Stakes for fillies. Ridden by Tyler Baze, Travesura ran the mile in 1:37.01 and paid $24.80.

Pussycat Lips was second and Flashy Ways third.

''I knew she would be tough today,'' Baze said. ''This is a nice filly. Bigger and better things maybe.''
