The Landaluce Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually during the first part of July at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California (relocated from Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California which closed in 2013). Open to two-year-old filles, it is contested over a distance of 5 1/2 furlongs on Cushion Track synthetic dirt.

Inaugurated in 1945 as the Hollywood Lassie Stakes, it was renamed in 1983 to honor Landaluce, the 1982 race winner and that year's American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly who died from a virus on December 11, 1982.

In 2004, the Landaluce Stakes lost its Grade III status.


Speed record:

  • 1:08.00 - Landaluce (1982) (at former distance of 6 furlongs) Landaluce also holds the record for biggest winning margin, opening up by 21 lengths over the rest of the field going down the stretch.
  • 1:03.94 - Enchanting Lady (2014) (at current distance of 5 1/2 furlongs)
