Baze and Hollendorfer captured the third race with Light Up the Sky, who rallied from off the pace to win the 1 1/16-mile turf race for fillies and mares by a half-length over 3-2 favorite Ruby Pumps. Light Up the Sky paid $10.20 – a handsome price for a horse with Hall of Fame connections.
Hollendorfer sent out 101 winners to earn his 40th career training championship at Golden Gate Fields. Hollendorfer was followed by Steve Sherman (55), William E. Morey (53), John F. Martin (43), and Steve Miyadi (43).
Horse racing in Northern California now moves to the summer fair circuit, with the first stop being the Alameda County Fair meeting in Pleasanton. Racing begins Thursday at 1:15 p.m.
Live racing will return to Golden Gate Fields on Friday, Aug. 17, when the track opens its summer meeting. In the meantime, Golden Gate Fields will be open Wednesday through Sunday for simulcast wagering on action from the fairs and top tracks across the country.
