Mizdirection Fires Las Cienegas Bullet

Mizdirection wins 2013 Monrovia.

Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Mizdirection worked four furlongs on Santa Anita’s firm turf course in 48.40 on a Saturday morning that quickly went from fog-shrouded to sunny.

The gray Mizzen Mast mare, owned in part by TV and radio sports talk icon Jim Rome’s Jungle Racing, is scheduled to make her next start in the Grade III Las Cienegas Stakes on April 13 before going east for the Grade I Just a Game Stakes on Belmont Stakes Day, June 8.

“She went real good,” said Mike Puype, who also trains the 5-year-old for William Strauss, Daniel Grohs, Kevin Nish, Michael Kramek and Boris Beljak. “I got her in 47 and four. It was her first work (since winning the Grade II Buena Vista Stakes at one mile on grass Feb. 18). She’ll have three more and we’re on for the 13th. Everything’s good. She’s an amazing horse. She never misses a beat.”

In 14 career starts, Mizdirection has nine wins, four seconds, one third and earnings of $1,094,621. “You can’t pound on these horses all year,” Puype continued. “I’m fortunate that the owners are real good in doing what’s right for her, and it’s paid off.”
