INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Iotapa beat Ciao Bella Luna by 1 1/4 lengths Sunday in the $74,920 Railbird Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park, giving jockey Joe Talamo a sweep of the weekend stakes races.

Iotapa’s victory came a day after Talamo won the $150,250 Majorie L. Everett Handicap with 9-1 shot Open Water and the $100,500 Fran’s Valentine Stakes with 9-2 shot Unusual Hottie.

Iotapa ran seven furlongs on Cushion Track in 1:23.40 and paid $4.80, $3.40 and $2.10. It was trainer John Sadler’s third win in the Railbird.

Ciao Bella Luna returned $4.40 and $2.40, while Hail Mary was another two lengths back in third and paid $2.10 to show.

Iotap has three wins in four career starts, and earnings of $155,490.

Rafael Bejarano won the sixth and seventh races on the card to extend his lead in the jockeys’ standings.
