Freakin Rocket stays unbeaten in Hollywood feature
INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Freakin Rocket followed a debut victory of nearly 10 lengths with another runaway win to remain undefeated Thursday in a $54,000 allowance for 3-year-olds at Betfair Hollywood Park.
The even-money favorite ridden by Joe Talamo, Freakin Rocket caught early leader Strong Wind in the homestretch and pulled away for a 5½-length victory, covering six furlongs in 1:09.92.
The winner paid $4, $3 and 2.60. Know More was second and paid $4.60 and $4.20. Strong Wind fell to third and returned $4.60.
Freakin Rocket, a son of Rock Hard Ten and Freakin Streakin, earned $32,400, increasing his career total to $52,200.
