Dixieland Blues Rallies Strongly at Betfair Hollywood Park

Dixieland Blues ended a six-race losing streak, rallying strongly to win the $55,250 feature Friday at Betfair Hollywood Park.

The beaten favorite in four of those defeats, the 5-year-old gelded son of In Excess got the job done as the 2-1 choice, defeating Mr. Ornery and eight other horses either bred or sired in California.

Ridden with patience by jockey Garrett Gomez, Dixieland Blues swung to the outside entering the stretch and was up in time, winning by a half-length over stablemate Mr. Ornery, a 9-1 shot who was making his first start of 2013.

Out of the Dixieland Band mare Southern Charm, Dixieland Blues won for the second time in 10 starts and pushed his earnings to $109,064.

Trained by Marty Jones – who also conditions the runner-up – for owner-breeders Harris Farms, Inc., Don Valpredo and John Nicoletti, the bay completed the six furlongs on turf in 1:09.54. He paid $6, $3.40 and $2.80.

Mr. Ornery, who broke his maiden at first asking at nearly 41-1 at the same trip last June 9, returned $10 and $5.20. He finished a half-length in front of 3-1 second choice and recent maiden winner U’narack. The show price on U’narack was $2.60.
