December 07, 1985

Vivid Dancer, ridden by Alex Solis, lagged badly in the early going but made up ground and pulled away down the stretch to easily win the $22,000 feature race Friday at Hollywood Park.

Vivid Dancer finished six lengths in front of My Virginia Reel, ridden by Chris McCarron. Natalie Knows, with Ray Sibile aboard, was another 1-1/4 lengths back in the race for fillies and mares. The winner ran the mile in 1:35 1/5.

Sent off the 3-1 second choice by 13,945 fans, Vivid Dancer paid $8, $3.20 and $2.40. Natalie Knows returned $3 to show.

In the third race, Bill Shoemaker, the world's winningest jockey, scored the 8,500th victory of his career aboard Ontheemis.
