Watch This Cat Wins Las Cienegas Stakes at Santa Anita Park
The $100,000 G3 Las Cienegas Stakes went down Saturday, January 7 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Fillies and mares four years old and upward took to Santa Anita's sloppy dirt track (after rain forced the race off of the downhill turf course) and raced about 6 1/2 furlongs. Harry Bederian, Harout Kamberian, and Hagop Nakkashian's 9-5 second choice Watch This Cat posted her first stakes win - by an easy 8 1/2 lengths over Paquita Coqueta who held for second at 2-1 odds. 3-2 favorite Cadet Roni finished third in the field of just four while Lajatico trailed. Prize Exhibit scratched.
