Killer Graces, who won the Cinderella Stakes June 11 in her first start for Hollendorfer after being privately purchased, should benefit from the additional sixteenth of a mile in the Landaluce.


The Congaree filly out of the Old Trieste mare Heatherdoesntbluff is 1-for-2 with earnings of $53,530.


Trainer Peter Miller, who won the 2006 Landaluce with Pinata, will have two representatives – Woebegon and Stayclassysandiego – in 2011.


Owned by Mace and Samantha Siegel’s Jay Em Ess Stable, Woebegon was a gate-to-wire winner at nearly 14-1 in her June 26 debut. The daughter of Saint Anddan and the Montbrook mare Wonton earned $30,000 for the impressive score.


Claimed for $40,000 by Miller for owner Gary Barber out of a debut win June 10, Stayclassysandiego is a Rockport Harbor filly out of the Forest Wildcat mare Latin Lynx. She earned $16,200 for the 4 ¼ length victory.


Mighty Caroline was another first out winner, prevailing by a head June 12. The gray daughter of Stormy Atlantic and the Maria’s Mon mare Mighty Renee banked $30,000 for owner-breeder John Liviakis and trainer Melody Conlon.


Son de America will make her initial start since winning her two furlong debut April 14 at Santa Anita. Owned by a partnership and trained by Marcelo Polanco, the Discreet Cat filly out of the Street Cry mare Elizabeth Street earned $15,000 for her victory in the $100,000 maiden claimer.


Chloe W was second in the Cinderella for Gem Inc. and trainer Eric Kruljac. The El Corredor filly out of the Lively One mare Fair and Lively earned $14,510 in her debut.


From inside out, the field for the Landaluce:  Woebegon, Martin Pedroza rides, 117 pounds; Killer Graces, Joe Talamo, 120; Stayclassysandiego, Victor Espinoza, 117; Mighty Caroline, Joel Rosario, 117; Chloe W, Rafael Bejarano, 115 and Son de America, Tyler Baze, 117.
