3rd-Parx Racing, $45,760, Msw, 6-24, 2yo, f, 4 1/2f, :55.65, ft, neck.
HOLLYWOOD BEAUTY (f, 2, Honor A. P.–America's Friend {SW, $284,244}, by Unusual Heat) became the second debut winner and third overall for her freshman sire (by Honor Code) with a determined effort in the season's first baby race in suburban Philly. Off at odds of 10-1, the bay was void of early speed despite being asked for it and raced in fifth of the six runners into the turn. Improving her position inside approaching the quarter pole, Hollywood Beauty continued to gain, was shifted to the inside of the well-backed Mischief Maxey (Maximus Mischief) with time ticking away and was along late to score narrowly. A half-sister to America's Tale (Gio Ponti), GSW, $405,853, Hollywood Beauty is the seventh winner out of a stakes-winning full-sister to Bel Air Sizzle, a two-time stakes winner in Cal-bred company and runner-up in the 2008 GI Del Mar Oaks. America's Friend is also a sister to GSP Starspangled Heat. Hollywood Beauty is the second winner over the past few days produced by Unusual Heat mares, joining Warming (Global Campaign), who graduated at first asking on the turf at Aqueduct June 21. America's Friend is the dam of a yearling filly by Independence Hall and was most recently bred to Mandaloun. Sales history: $30,000 Wlg '22 KEENOV; $8,000 Ylg '23 FTKOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $25,200. Click for the Equibase.com chart or VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
