ARCADIA, Calif. -- Judy the Beauty won the $100,000 Las Flores Stakes by 4 3/4 lengths at Santa Anita on Sunday.

Ridden by John Velazquez, Judy the Beauty ran six furlongs in 1:08.22 after shipping in from her base at Florida's Gulfstream Park. She had been idle since finishing second in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint on Nov. 2.

Judy the Beauty paid $3, $2.20 and $2.10 as the 1-2 favorite in a field of five older fillies and mares.

Heir Kitty returned $3 and $2.20, and Munnings Sister was another nose back in third and paid $2.40 to show.

The victory, worth $60,000, increased Judy the Beauty's career earnings to $825,757, with six wins in 14 starts.
