Mia Mischief (f, 2, Into Mischief) made 1-2 look like a gift in Sunday's seventh race at Keeneland, splashing home in the slop to score by the better part of 16 lengths to become the latest 'TDN Rising Star.' Exiting a runner-up effort to Princess Warrior (Midshipman), second as the favorite in Friday's GI Darley Alcibiades S., the $135,000 Keeneland September yearling turned $300,000 Fasig-Tipton Florida March breezer was in front from the word go and was past the half-mile in :46 and change, but she widened at once turning for home and finished full of run to score as a mile the best. It was officially 16 1/4 lengths back to 45-1 chance So Refined (Tapizar) in second. The winner has a weanling half-brother by Cross Traffic and her second dam, the MSW Roll Over Baby (Rollin On Over) produced the likes of GSW Sing Baby Sing, MGISP Value Plus and GSW Roll Hennessy Roll. Mia Mischief's dam, a maiden special weight winner for owner B. Wayne Hughes at Fair Grounds in 2008, was bred back to Into Mischief.
