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.”
