‘Boat Trip’ Rallies From Last To Win $99,998 Betfair At Hollywood Park

   INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Boat Trip rallied from last to win the $99,998 Hollywood Turf Express by a half-length, with a rare triple dead-heat for second at Betfair Hollywood Park on Sunday.

Ridden by Joe Talamo, Boat Trip ran six furlongs on the turf in 1:08.45 and paid $9.60, $2.10 and $2.10 in a race that was restored to the track’s fall stakes calendar for the first time since 2008.

No Silent, Chips All In and even-money favorite Unbridled’s Note all returned $2.10 and $2.10 after battling each other for the entire race. It was just the third triple dead-heat in the track’s 75-year history. The other two were for first place in 1957 and 1997.

Boat Trip won for the fourth time in five starts on the track’s turf course and increased his career earnings to $253,196.
