With over $1 million in earnings already as a four year old,
Marketing Mix has only finished off the board three times for trainer Tom Proctor and Glen Hill Farm. With a record like that, being in excellent form,
and a victory at Arlington last year in the Grade 3 Pucker Up (REPLAY HERE), this filly must
be considered on all tickets.
Marketing Mix sure has a championship pedigree
. Her sire,
needs no explanation. Her broodmare sire, Kris S
(not to be
mistaken with me, Chris S.
) also needs no explanation. Her family roots go all
the way back to Canadian
great Northern Dancer
. So we already know that she has
solid bloodlines for graded stakes competition.
Her worst start of her career was in her very first race, a
dirt sprint at Gulfstream last March where she went off as a 20-1 longshot. She
obviously didn’t care for the dirt and won her next race on the Polytrack at Keeneland
as a 13-1 shot! She never returned to the dirt at all and actually took to the
turf quite well during her three year old campaign. Her results on the turf were:
- Win in the Wonder Where Stakes at Woodbine
- Win in the Grade 3 Pucker Up Stakes at Arlington
- Place in the Grade 1 QEII Challenge Cup Stakes at
- Win in the Grade 2 Mrs. Revere Stakes at Churchill
Not bad for her three year old season, eh
(Marketing Mix wins the Pucker Up at Arlington!)
After a five month break, Marketing Mix started where she
left off and had three victories from four starts in her 2012 season. After an
allowance tune-up victory at Keeneland in April, she has taken home two Grade 2
stakes victories at Woodbine so far this summer. I believe she will be poised
and ready to strike in the Beverly D. this season!
