INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Jockey Rafael Bejarano and Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer had three winners each on California Gold Rush day at Betfair Hollywood Park on Saturday.

Bejarano was aboard Surfcup in the $300,000 Snow Chief Stakes, the richest on the card restricted to horses bred or sired in California. He also won the $245,000 Melair Stakes and the $125,250 Tiznow a day after he rode four winners on Friday's card.

Bejarano is 11 wins away from reaching 3,000 in a career that began in his native Peru in 2001.

In the Snow Chief, Surfcup won by a half-length over Fighting Hussar.

Trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, Surfcup ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.80 and paid $12, $6.60 and $3.20. It was Surfcup's third win in six career starts, but first on a surface other than turf. The 3-year-old colt has earnings of $275,800.

Fighting Hussar returned $7.20 and $3.20, while Tiz a Minister was another four lengths back in third and paid $2.20 to show as the 11-10 favorite.

In the Melair, 7-10 favorite Doinghardtimeagain won by 1
