MISS ROCKETTE (f, 3, Into Mischief–Song of Spring {GSW, $234,403}, by Spring At Last) was sent to her owner's home track at Oaklawn Park as the 4-5 chalk for her 8 1/2-furlong debut Apr. 20 and she looked on her way to an easy victory only to be run down by the slow-starting Flashy Dancer (Curlin) in a 'TDN Rising Star'-worthy performance. Content to take the trail from third as chief market rival Ms Bo J (Mitole) set the pace off the inside, the $1.25-million KEESEP purchase traveled strongly in hand on the turn as the pace dropped away. Eased into the two path to challenge in earnest at the top of the lane, Miss Rockette rolled to the front and pulled away to score unextended, then galloped out with good energy. Miss Rockette is the first foal out of 2018 GIII Allaire duPont Distaff winner Song of Spring and hails from the family of MGISW Dream Rush (Wild Rush), the dam of GISW Dreaming of Julia (A.P. Indy) and granddam of champion Malathaat (Curlin); MGSW Dream Pauline (Tapit) and SW Atreides (Medaglia d'Oro). Song of Spring is also represented by the 2-year-old colt Spring Dream (Vino Rosso), a yearling colt by City of Light and was most recently bred to Into Mischief. Sales history: $1,250,000 Ylg '22 KEESEP. Lifetime Record: 2-1-1-0, $55,400. Click for the chart and VIDEO, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
