LADY MYSTIFY (f, 3, Bernardini–J. Quirk, by Unbridled's Song) took to two turns to say the least Saturday in Arcadia. A close second at 15-1 going 5 1/2 furlongs at Los Alamitos Dec. 5, the bay was third over an additional sixteenth here Jan. 10. Backed at 3-2 getting more ground to work with, the bay beat her three foes to the lead and zipped along through splits of :22.85 and :46.43. She blew the race apart around the home bend, and found no competition from there as at least two of her rivals seemed to struggle with the distance. American Heights (American Pharoah) was best of the rest. The winner hails from the extended female family of Tiznow. She has a 2-year-old half-brother by Quality Road who was a $190,000 KEESEP yearling and her dam visited Gun Runner last season. Sales history: $120,000 Ylg '19 OBSOCT; $325,000 2yo '20 OBSAPR. Lifetime Record: 3-1-1-1, $52,320. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
