ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Sister Kate overtook Candrea late in the race to win the $70,000 Santa Lucia Stakes for older fillies and mares by a three-quarters of a length at Santa Anita on Sunday.

Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Sister Kate ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:45.22 and paid $18.40, $6 and $4. The 5-year-old full sister to 2006 Santa Anita Derby winner Brother Derek had been idle since winning at the same distance on Feb. 23 at Golden Gate Fields.

Candrea returned $6.40 and $4.60 as one of two entries trained by Bob Baffert. Sister Glady Oh La was another 3 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.80 to show as a 15-1 shot. Baffert's other entry, 3-5 favorite Maker or Breaker, was fourth.

The victory, worth $55,200, increased Sister Kate's career earnings to $206,984, with five wins in 14 starts.

Mike Dempsey Mike covers the New York racing circuit (Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga) year round as well as Keeneland, Churchill Downs, the Triple Crown, and the Breeders' Cup.
The 2015 Triple Crown saw Mike correctly predict American Pharoah to win both the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. Mike nailed the Exacta and Trifecta in the Belmont Stakes.

Mike had a solid 2014 Triple Crown race season, correctly picking the winning horse in 2 of 3 races. He selected I'll Have another to win The Preakness, and nailed Union Rags to win the Belmont Stakes as his top pick.

Mike also had past success in the Kentucky Derby, winning with Animal Kingdom in 2011 and rode his top picks, Super Saver and Street Sense, to the finish line in 2010 and 2007 respectively.
