Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (gr. IT) victress Mizdirection returned to the Santa Anita Park lawn with a four-furlong breeze Sept. 20, her second since a brief respite and first since going three furlongs on the Del Mar turf.
When Mizdirection runs on the turf course at Santa Anita Park, victory seems assured. On Feb. 18 the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner added the $150,000 Buena Vista Stakes to her resume.
Odds-on Mizdirection made the best of what was left of the $98,000 Las Cienegas Handicap after the race was moved off the hillside turf course and contested on the main track with three rivals left.
