Marketing Mix Targets Distaff Turf Mile

Glen Hill Farm’s Marketing Mix, easy winner of the Mrs. Revere (GII) at Churchill Downs in the fall, will make her return to the Matt Winn Turf Course in the $200,000-added Churchill Distaff Turf Mile Presented by American Commercial Lines (GII).

 

The Churchill Distaff Turf Mile, which is to be run as part of the Kentucky Derby Day undercard on Saturday, May 5, will be the second start of the year for the Canadian-bred daughter of Medaglia d’Oro. She made her 4-year-old debut in a one mile allowance race on the turf at Keeneland on April 11 against a very competitive field that included Hungry Island, winner of the Lake Placid (GII) at Saratoga, and Queen’s Plate winner Inglorious.

 

“It was a little tougher than anyone wanted,” trainer Tom Proctor said. “She ran great. I thought she would run a big race because she was training great at Tampa (Bay Downs).”

 

Marketing Mix is currently stabled at Keeneland, but Proctor said she will join his barn at Churchill Downs in a few days.

 

“I’m hoping the race (at Keeneland) didn’t take too much out of her,” Proctor said. “I think she’s ready to rock and roll.”

 

Other horses currently pointing to the Churchill Distaff Turf Mile according to Churchill Downs officials include Annabel Lee, Aruna, City to City, Daisy Devine, Hungry Island, It’s Tea Time, Maggies Ransom and Tapitsfly.
