ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Sister Kate overtook Candrea late in the race to win the $70,000 Santa Lucia Stakes for older fillies and mares by a three-quarters of a length at Santa Anita on Sunday.

Ridden by Corey Nakatani, Sister Kate ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:45.22 and paid $18.40, $6 and $4. The 5-year-old full sister to 2006 Santa Anita Derby winner Brother Derek had been idle since winning at the same distance on Feb. 23 at Golden Gate Fields.

Candrea returned $6.40 and $4.60 as one of two entries trained by Bob Baffert. Sister Glady Oh La was another 3 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $3.80 to show as a 15-1 shot. Baffert's other entry, 3-5 favorite Maker or Breaker, was fourth.

The victory, worth $55,200, increased Sister Kate's career earnings to $206,984, with five wins in 14 starts.
