Back to Work for Champion Pretty Mischievous

Pretty Mischievous | Sarah Andrew

Last year's Eclipse champion 3-year-old filly Pretty Mischievous (f, 4, Into Mischief-Pretty City Dancer, by Tapit) recorded her first work since her championship campaign Thursday morning at Palm Meadows in Florida. The three furlongs she covered in :37.65 was her first breeze in nearly four months.

“She went nice, just an easy three-eighths and galloped out a half-mile,” said trainer Brendan Walsh. “It went good and we are glad to get her back on the work tab.

“We've done plenty of galloping with her the last few weeks at Palm Meadows to get a good bottom on her. She looks like she's done very well with her little break and we look forward to the year ahead.”

Pretty Mischievous captured the GI Kentucky Oaks, GI Acorn S., and GI Test S. en route to championship honors. For more on her career and return to racing for another season, see our update earlier this month from Steve Sherack.

Walsh indicated the 'TDN Rising Star' does not have a specific target as yet.

“We'll just see how things fare down here,” he said. “We won't be in any rush with her. We'll let her tell us when she's ready.”

Continued Walsh, “We are very proud of her. She was a tribute to everybody on the Godolphin team and my own team here. Hopefully she moves forward this year and I think we can have another very good year with her if she does.”
