Sam's Sister is a multiple graded stakes winner whose powerful closing style earned for her back-to-back victories in the 2014 La Brea Stakes (G1) and 2015 Santa Monica Stakes (G2). A proven sprinter at the highest levels, she has recorded five wins in 10 starts during two seasons of racing. Sam's Sister came from off the pace to win the La Brea Stakes at Santa Anita with a late rally to defeat such graded stakes winners as Taris and Thank You Marylou. Less than a month later she captured the Santa Monica Stakes in similar style, closing ground through the stretch to overtake the frontrunner and win by 1 1/4 lengths. By Brother Derek is out of the winning winning Include mare Kittery Point, Sam's Sister is from the family of Grade 1 stakes winners Sweet Talker, Include Me Out and Check the Label.

She's a very nice horse. I have to thank Mr. Hollendorfer for giving me the opportunity to ride such a nice horse.
