INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Heavy favorite Charm the Maker had to battle for her first stakes victory Sunday, wearing down a stubborn Killer Graces with a rally in the final yards in the $100,000 Sharp Cat Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Hollywood Park.

Ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Ron McAnally, Charm the Maker broke from the outside in the field of five and ran wide throughout the race, coming from two lengths back at the top of the stretch for a 1 1/4-length win. She ran 1 1-16 miles in 1:45.14.
