Last Grade 1 of the
year at Santa Anita

THE curtain comes down on the Grade / Group 1 racing scene in Europe and North America for 2008 on Saturday, December 27 at Santa Anita Park.

The La Brea Stakes, a race for three-year-old fillies,  has attracted ten entries including the previous Grade 1 winner Country Star, a daughter of Empire Maker and the winner of the Darley Alcibiades and Hollywood Starlet for owner-breeder Stonerside in 2007. She is due to run on Saturday in Darley's colours after the organisation's acquistion of the Stonerside operation in 2008.

Through 2008 the filly finished unplaced in the Grade I Ashland Stakes and Grade I Kentucky Oaks and fell over in the stalls before the Grade 1 Gazelle Stakes.
