INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Open Water upset 7-10 favorite Lady of Fifty to win the $150,250 Marjorie L. Everett Handicap by a length at Betfair Hollywood Park on Saturday, giving jockey Joe Talamo a sweep of the day's stakes races.

He rode Unusual Hottie to victory in the $100,500 Fran's Valentine Stakes earlier in the day.

Open Water ran 1 1/16 miles on Cushion Track in 1:44.01 and paid $21.40, $6.20 and $3.20 at 9-1 odds.

It was Open Water's third win in 14 career starts, with earnings of $270,750. She earned her first win outside of Kentucky, snapping an 0-for-8 skid in California and New York. Her previous two wins came on synthetic Polytrack at Turfway Park.

``She was really game,'' said Talamo, who won last year's Everett Handicap with Include Me Out and was aboard Open Water for the first time.

Lady of Fifty returned $3 and $2.20, while I Dazzle was another 4 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.40 to show.

In the Fran's Valentine for fillies or mares bred or sired in California, Unusual Hottie won by three-quarters of a length over Sugarinthemorning.

Unusual Hottie ran a mile on the turf in 1:34.28 and paid $11, $5.80 and $2.80. She won for the sixth time in 13 career starts and has earnings of $289,498. Talamo also won the race last year with Halo Dolly.

``Man, she sure is sweet to ride,'' he said about Unusual Hottie. ``Everything went perfect. I saved all the ground, swung out and she just took off.''

Sugarinthemorning returned $7 and $3.20 in losing her 13th in a row. Top Kisser was another nose back in third and paid $2.20 as the 4-5 favorite.
