Mizdirection will be included in the Three Chimneys Sales consignment.

High-profile broodmare prospects Authenticity, Love and Pride, and Mizdirection have been added to the Fasig-Tipton November sale, Three Chimneys Sales announced Oct. 16.

Authenticity, a grade II winner and multiple grade I-placed, is a daughter of top broodmare sire Quiet American.

"Fappiano and his line have always been successful broodmare sires and, in fact, arguably the three hottest sires in North America are all out of Fappiano line mares," pedigree analyst Bill Oppenheim said in a release. "The 3x2 inbreeding to Dr. Fager contributes to what is described as 'hybrid vigor' and no doubt is another reason why Quiet American is such a sought-after broodmare sire."

Love and Pride, by A.P. Indy from the immediate family of Bernardini  , was a multiple grade I winner and earner of nearly $1 million. Love and Pride is in foal to Distorted Humor  .

"(Love and Pride) is tall and beautiful with good bone," said Three Chimneys sales director Guinness McFadden. "She's a lovely mare who carries herself with a well-deserved level of class. She checks every box and would be a highly sought-after foundation mare for any broodmare band."

Also selling at Fasig-Tipton in the Three Chimneys consignment is Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IT) winner Mizdirection. A 5-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast  , Mizdirection is pointing toward a repeat performance in this year's Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint against males.

"Buyers are going to like what they see in these three mares," McFadden said. "They are elite broodmare prospects on paper and all three are head-turners in the flesh. Any one of these three will add marked class to any broodmare band."

Authenticity and Love and Pride will be available for inspection at the Three Chimneys consignment at Fasig-Tipton beginning Nov. 2.

Mizdirection will ship from California to Lexington after her Breeders' Cup run and will be available for inspection Nov. 4.
