INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) Blueskiesnrainbows beat 2-1 favorite Hear the Ghost by a half-length, giving Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer a 1-2-3 finish in the $150,000 Native Diver Stakes on Saturday.
Hollendorfer's other entry, Rousing Sermon, was another half-length back in third at Betfair Hollywood Park.
Ridden by Martin Pedroza, Blueskiesnrainbows ran 1 1/8 miles on Cushion Track in 1:50.07 and paid $8.40, $3.80 and $3.
