Into Mischief 'Rising Star' On Best Behavior in Untapable

Pretty Mischievous | Hodges Photography / Lou Hodges, Jr.

Pretty Mischievous made it a clean sweep of the afternoon's two-turn juvenile stakes for 'TDN Rising Stars' with a good-looking success in Monday's Untapable S. at the Fair Grounds.

Made the 8-5 second pick off a third behind the promising Hoosier Philly (Into Mischief) in the GII Golden Rod S. at Churchill Downs Nov. 26, the Godolphin homebred broke well from the rail draw and enjoyed the run of the race from just in behind. Allowed to take a two-path run passing the 4 1/2-furlong marker, Pretty Mischievous had a head in front as they turned for home, pinched a winning break and ran out a four-length winner over The Alys Look (Connect). Favored Vahva (Gun Runner) bombed the start and raced at the back of the field, but finished off nicely and did well to fill third spot, albeit well-beaten.

A second stakes winner on the card, joining Letellier Memorial S. victress Dazzling Blue, Into Mischief now sits on 118 stakes winners. Through Stroud Coleman Bloodstock, Godolphin acquired 2016 GI Spinaway S. dead-heater Pretty City Dancer for $3.5 million at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton November Sale. A half-sister to Grade I winner Lear's Princess (Lear Fan), Pretty City Dancer is also responsible for Ornamental (Medaglia d'Oro), a maiden winner at Indiana Grand Oct. 25, and a weanling filly by Medaglia d'Oro. The mare was most recently bred to Street Sense. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
