Double Pick 6 Carryover at Hollywood Park

Less than two weeks after losing as the favorite in an allowance race on the Kentucky Derby undercard,  Streakin’ Mohican returned in style Friday night at Hollywood Park.

 

Making his turf debut, the 4-year-old gelded son of Songandaprayer and the Northern Afleet mare Teak Totem quickly established command, then had enough left to hold off favored Cherokee Heaven, an unlucky runner-up, in the $57,710 feature.

 

The mild upset by Streakin’ Mohican helped lead to another Pick 6 carryover, so there is a pool of $236,614 awaiting Saturday. Due to the simulcast of the 136th Preakness from Pimlico, Hollywood Park has an early post time of 11 a.m. With an 11 race card, the Pick 6 begins on the sixth race. The approximate post time is 1:36 p.m..

 

Owned by a partnership that includes Dave Kenney, W.C. Racing and Westside Rentals.com, Streakin’ Mohican provided trainer Doug O’Neill with his second victory of the evening. The leading trainer at the 2010 Spring/Summer meet, O’Neill had only one win at the current meet before Friday. His earlier win came with favored Onefunsonofagun in the second.

Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Streakin’ Mohican covered the six furlongs in 1:08.55 while winning by 1 ¼ lengths. He returned $9.20, $3.20 and $2.60 as the 7-2 second choice.

 

Cherokee Heaven, who was away well behind his five rivals, paid $3.40 and $2.10 as he sought his third consecutive victory. The show price on Raetodandty, who finished 1 ¼ lengths behind the even-money favorite, was $3.40.

 

The win was the seventh in 23 races for Streakin’ Mohican, who was bred in Florida by Brylynn Farm, Inc., and increased his earnings to $219,089.

 

Track gates at Hollywood Park will open at 8 a.m Saturday. The first of 11 imports from Pimlico is scheduled for 8:43 a.m.

 

Post time for the Preakness is 3:18 PDT, so it will be shown between the eighth and ninth races at Hollywood Park.

 

Two graded stakes headline the Hollywood Park card. Ultra Blend, St Trinians and Washington Bridge top the field in the $150,000 Milady Handicap, a Grade II at 1 1/16 miles over Cushion Track, while May Day Rose and Alec’s Moon are the co-highweights in the $100,000 Railbird Stakes. A Grade III for 3-year-old fillies at seven furlongs, the Railbird is the 10th race while the Milady is the fifth.
