Noches de Rosa, a 5-year-old Chilean-bred mare, recorded her first North American victory Friday, capturing the featured $81,800 Reloy Handicap at Santa Anita Park by one length.
Including last-minute entry Dig For It, who was supplemented for $25,000 by trainer Bruce Headley, a field of seven was entered for Sunday's $750,000 Hollywood Gold Cup at Hollywood Park.
It will be student versus teacher in the $100,000 Bel Air Handicap at Hollywood Park when trainer Richard Baltas and Freedom Crest meets the Richard Mandella-trained Out Of Mind. Baltas assisted Mandella for 1 1/2 years before going out on his own.
