New Stakes Winner for Into Mischief in Breeders' Cup Friday Opener

Highly Motivated (Into Mischief) led home a 1-3 finish and became the 81st black-type winner for his sire, establishing a new track record in the opening race of Breeders' Cup weekend. Quick Tempo (Tapizar) won the break and set a slick early pace, as Javier Castellano had the favorite settled from a midfield fifth while glued to the inside. Pinching ground on the turn, Highly Motivated popped off the fence and went on the attack three wide off the home corner, grabbed the front-runner at the sixteenth pole and pulled...

Into Mischief Filly Handles Winners at Belmont

4th-Belmont, $63,050, Alw, 10-11, (NW1$X), 3yo/up, f/m, 6f, 1:09.40, ft, 2 3/4 lengths. MOTIVATED SELLER (f, 3, Into Mischief--Coup {SW, $132,637}, by Empire Maker) was spotting plenty of experience to her competition, but performed like an old pro Sunday to go two-for-two off a lengthy lay-off.

Away on top, Motivated Seller was passed heading...

For the considerable success he's achieved on the New York circuit and particularly on the turf, it wasn't until 2015 that trainer Chad Brown unsaddled the winner of the GIII Lake George S. for the first time (Mrs McDougal {Medaglia d'Oro}). The stable's lone chance in Friday's renewal, Selflessly (More Than Ready), was pegged as a 6-1 chance on David Aragona's morning line, but the tote read a remarkable 14-1 at post time and those who ignored her paid dearly, as the Maryland-bred was up in the final jump to...

Dansili Filly Holds On in Belmont Debut

7th-Belmont, $64,000, Msw, 6-13, 3yo/up, f/m, 1mT, 1:34.08, fm. COST BENEFIT (GB) (f, 3, Dansili {GB}--Forgotten Dreams {Ire}, by Olden Times {GB}) took the lion's share of the pari-mutuel action at 8-5 and got her nose down ahead of her Peter Brant-owned stable companion Dovima (Union Rags) to open her account at first asking. A bit keyed up in the preliminaries, Cost Benefit broke alertly and aggressively tugged Joel Rosario to the front through an opening quarter-mile in :23.02 and a half in :46.51. Still traveling strongly, but not overracing,...
