INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Half Strike won the $54,324 feature at Betfair Hollywood Park by 2 3/4 lengths Friday, moving jockey Rafael Bejarano within one win of 3,000 for his career.

Half Strike ran 1 1/16 miles on Cushion Track in 1:44.46 and paid $3.40, $2.20 and $2.10 as the 7-10 favorite.

Fast Track returned $3.60 and $3, while Mind the Master was another 1 1/4 lengths back in third and paid $3.80 to show.

Half Strike has career earnings of $81,160.

Bejarano leads the jockeys' standings at the spring-summer meet, and is set to ride seven horses on Saturday's card in pursuit of the milestone.

Joe Talamo rode three winners Friday, moving into second behind Bejarano in the standings.
