Cees Stable's Cee's Elegance scored her first stakes victory Sunday at Hollywood Park, surprising heavy favorite Super High with a romping win in the $100,000-added Cat's Cradle Handicap for California bred fillies and mares.
A potentially large field is building for Monday's $125,000 Solana Beach Handicap for California-bred fillies and mares, 3 years old and up, going one mile on the Jimmy Durante Turf Course.
Although multiple grade I winner Affluent will be a deserving morning-line favorite in Sunday's grade II El Encino Stakes, it wouldn't be prudent to discount Graceful Cat's chances in the 1 1/16-mile event for 4-year-old fillies.
The regally-named Royally Chosen will have another chance at dethroning the current queen of the 4-year-old fillies, Affluent, in Sunday's El Encino Stakes (gr. II) at 1 1/16 miles.
