Killer Graces heads a lineup of seven 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 miles on turf in the 32nd running of the Grade II, $150,000 Providencia Stakes.

 

The Providencia will mark the first start on turf for the daughter of Congaree who won the Grade I Hollywood Starlet last December at Hollywood Park and who ran second to Willa B Awesome in the Grade III Santa Ysabel Stakes at Santa Anita on Jan. 28.

 

Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer for a partnership, Killer Graces will be ridden for the first time by Bejarano while carrying high weight of 123 pounds. She is the most accomplished runner in the field with earnings of $414,830 from a 3-4-0 record in 10 career starts. The Providencia is carded as the eighth race.

Rosario rides the 4-year-old Val Royal filly, who earned $161,611 in Great Britain from an 8-7-0 record in 24 starts. She carries high weight of 123 pounds in the field of nine.
