Killer Graces wins the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet Stakes at Hollywood Park.

Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer won the 2010 Kentucky Oaks with Blind Luck and has another candidate for that race in Killer Graces, who won the most prestigious race of her career in the Starlet Stakes.

“If she keeps improving, we can take a shot at it,” Hollendorfer said Sunday.

Killer Graces won the third stakes of her career in the Starlet, ending a streak of four losses in stakes. Hollendorfer said that Killer Graces will be rested in coming weeks, with a potential 2012 debut in the $250,000 Las Virgenes Stakes on March 3.

“We may gave her a little break and start her back in the Las Virgenes,” Hollendorfer said.

Killer Graces, by Congaree, has won 3 of 8 starts and $394,830. The Starlet Stakes was her first win over 1 1/16 miles. Earlier this year, she won two sprint stakes at Hollywood Park.
