The $100,000 Grade 3 Santa Ysabel Stakes was contested Saturday, March 3 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California - a 1 3/16 miles dirt race for three year old fillies.

Jade Princess looked good early but faded for fourth while Pageant Material, Merirosvo, Code Warrior, My Dynamo and Not Now Carolyn completed the order of finish. Street Fancy scratched.
