Mizdirection Ships to New York Tuesday

Nov. 03, 2012 - Arcadia, California, U.S - Mizdirection (KY) ridden by Mike Smith and trained by Mike Puype, wins theBreeders' Cup Turf Sprint (Grade I) at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA.

Jungle Stable’s Mizdirection, winner of four consecutive graded stakes, worked five furlongs on turf in 1:00 1/5 Sunday at Betfair Hollywood Park in 1:00 1/5 in preparation for Saturday’s $500,000 Just a Game Stakes at Belmont Park.

 

Under Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, Mizdirection was timed in 23 3/5 for the opening quarter and 47 2/5 for a half mile, according to track clocker and morning line maker Russ Hudak. Trainer Mike Puype, who caught the work in 59 4/5, said the Mizzen Mast mare will fly to New York Tuesday for the mile grass race.


Mizdirection, owned in part by sports commentator Jime Rome, is one of five Grade 1 winners who are among the probables for the Grade 1, $500,000 Longines Just a Game for filly and mare turf horses. Best known for her success going short, Mizdirection, the 2012 Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint heroine, will aim for her second graded stakes score at one mile when she competes in the Longines Just a Game.

 

The race is also expected to attract Grade 1 winners Better Lucky, Centre CourtDayatthespa, and Stephanie’s Kitten, as well as Hungry Island and Laugh Out Loud.
