Marketing Mix, Daisy Devine Clash On Turf

Daisy Devine wins Pago Hop, November 26, 2011 at the Fair Grounds
Two rising grass stars, Daisy Devine and Marketing Mix, plus 2009 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Tapitsfly top a field of 10 to pass the entry box for the 27th running of the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile Presented by American Commercial Lines (GII) for fillies and mares going a mile on the Matt Winn Turf Course.

The Churchill Distaff Turf Mile, won last year by Aviate, will go as the eighth race Saturday with a 2:59 p.m. post time.

Owned by James Miller and trained by Andrew McKeever, Daisy Devine is undefeated in four starts on the turf. James Graham, who has been aboard for the past three victories that include a score in the Jenny Wiley (GI) last month at Keeneland, has the mount Saturday on Daisy Devine, who will exit post position five.

Glen Hill Farm’s Marketing Mix has won four of five starts on grass with the lone setback being a runner-up finish in last fall’s Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (GI) at Keeneland. Trained by Tom Proctor, Marketing Mix won the Mrs. Revere (GII) here to close out her 2011 and campaign and won her seasonal bow three weeks ago at Keeneland. Marketing Mix will start from post position three under Julien Leparoux.
 
Frank Jones Jr.’s Tapitsfly enters the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile off a third-place finish in the Jenny Wiley. Trained by Dale Romans, Tapitsfly took the Honey Fox (GII) in March at Gulfstream Park. Tapitsfly will break from post position four under Robby Albarado.

The field for the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile from the hedge out is as follows: Heavenly Landing (Corey Lanerie, 118 pounds), Hooh Why (Rafael Bejarano, 118), Marketing Mix (Leparoux, 120), Tapitsfly (Albarado, 120), Daisy Devine (Graham, 123), Annabel Lee (Jon Court, 118), Aruna (Ramon Dominguez, 118), City to City (Corey Nakatani, 120), La Reine Lionne (Javier Castellano, 118) and Hungry Island (John Velazquez, 118).
