Chandelier Stakes Race History

Raced as the Oak Leaf Stakes until 2011, the Chandelier Stakes is a Grade II race run each year at Santa Anita Park. Notable winners of the race include many notable fillies such as:

  • 1978 American Co-Champion two-Year-Old Filly It's In the Air (1978)
  • Hall of Famer Bold 'n Determined (1979)
  • Two time American Champion Life's Magic (1983)
  • 1983 American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly Sacahuista (1986)
  • 1995 American Champion Three-Year-Old FIlly and Hall of Famer Serena's Song (1994)
  • 2008 American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Stardom Bound (2008)
  • Two time American Champion Filly Songbird (2015)

Chris McCarron set the record for most wins by a jockey in 1992 when he secured his fifth career win. Legendary trainer Bob Baffert has recorded a whopping twelve victories at the Oak Leaf/Chandelier Stakes, cementing him as the all time winningest trainer. That being said, D. Wayne Lukas is hot on his tail as he owns nine wins of his own.

The race is featured in the Breeders' Cup Challenge Series, allowing the winner an automatic bid to race in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.
