HistoryEdit

The event is named in honor of United States Triple Crown and Hall of Fame trainer Lázaro "Laz" Barrera.

The inaugural running of the event is debatable since there are two paths that converge to the realization of the current event. The Los Angeles Turf Club which holds the event at Santa Anita believe that the current Lázaro Barrera Stakes has its beginnings via the Playa Del Rey Stakes which has its first running in 1953 at Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, California.[1] This event was set for Californian bred three year old fillies at a distance of 7 furlongs.[2] The event was run one more time and then was idle until 1995.

The other path merits consideration. With regard to the first running of the Affirmed Handicap in 1981,[3] the event was named after the 1978 United States Triple Crown Champion Affirmed who was trained by Lázaro Barrera. This event was held in the fall and was changed in 1991 by the Hollywood Turf Club to the Lazaro S. Barrera Handicap[3] four years before the renewal of the Playa Del Rey Stakes in 1995, the implied predecessor to the current event.

In 1999 the Hollywood Turf Club scheduled the Lazaro Barrera Memorial Stakes in late May at the current distance of 7 furlongs.[3]

The event was upgraded to a Grade II event in 2002, and was downgraded to Grade III in 2007.[3] In 2013 the event was run as the Listed Came Home Stakes.[3]
