Cheyenne Stables’ stakes-winning Light the City heads a quintet of entries trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Hollendorfer in Saturday’s $300,000 Las Virgenes S. at Santa Anita Park.

Light the City will try to bounce back after a loss in the Santa Ynez S. Jan. 3. The 3-year-old won the six furlong Anoakia S. three starts back on Oct. 12, and was a close third in the seven furlong Desi Arnez S. Nov. 16.

Light the City, who has two wins from four starts, will also be trying a route of ground for the first time. A Kentucky-bred filly by Street Sense, she’s out of the A.P. Indy mare Light From Above and has made $106,900. Ridden by Elvis Trujillo in all four of her races, she’ll be handled for the first time by Kent Desormeaux and breaks from the outside post in field of 10.

The one-mile Las Virgenes, a crucial step on the road to the Kentucky Oaks (G1), is race 8 and runs at approximately 4 p.m. PT.

Cheyenne Stables’ 2-year-old filly Light the City finished a game third, beaten little more than a length, in the $100,000 Desi Arnaz S. Sunday at Del Mar.

The daughter of Street Sense trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, who was going seven furlongs for the first time, got into a heated pace duel, going the first half-mile in :45.35 seconds. Battling through the stretch, she came home just 1 ¼-lengths off the winner.

Light the City broke her maiden first time out by 2 ¾-lengths at Del Mar on Aug. 24. She came back on Oct. 12 at Santa Anita in the six furlong Anoakia S., winning by an almost identical margin. Her record now stands at 2-0-1, with earnings of $102,900.

Light the City was bred in Kentucky by Hargus and Sandra Sexton. Her dam Light From Above is a half-sister to three-time stakes winner Richies Party Girl.
