La Cañada Stakes
The La Cañada Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race run annually during the second week of February at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. A Grade II event, the race is open to four-year-old fillies and mares willing to race one and one-eighth miles on dirt.
Inaugurated in 1975, for its first year only the race was contested at a distance of one-and-one-sixteenth miles. The race is part of Santa Anita Park's La Cañada Series of races open to newly turning/turned 4-year old fillies and run at an increasing distance. The series begins with the La Brea Stakes at 7 furlongs in December of the previous year. It is followed by the G-II El Encino Stakes at 1 1/16 miles in mid January, then the La Cañada Stakes. Since the creation of the series in 1975, only three fillies have ever won all three races: Taisez Vous (1978), Mitterand (1985), and Got Koko (2003). The Santa Anita Park counterpart series for male horses is the Strub Series.
