Honest Mischief (Into Mischief) ran to the money with an impressive graduation at Keeneland Saturday, becoming the newest ‘TDN Rising Star’. The Juddmonte homebred was second as the favorite behind a good-looking debut win from Soldado (Verrazano) in his career bow going six panels at Gulfstream Feb. 2 and was hammered down to 3-5 favoritism to go one better this time. Running five wide in mid-pack through a :22.48 opening quarter, the bay ranged up outside the leaders through a half in :45.39. Taking command while still four-wide exiting the bend, Honest Mischief powered clear in the lane to win for fun by eight lengths. Twelfth Labour (Quality Road) was best of the rest in second.

The winner is a half to First Defence (Unbridled’s Song), GISW, $580,534; and Phantom Rose (Danzig), SW-Fr. His Grade I-winning dam Honest Lady has only had one foal since Honest Mischief, a 2-year-old filly named Annual (Noble Mission {GB}), and she was not bred back. Out of GISW Toussaud (El Gran Senor), Honest Lady is a half-sister to top sire and MGISW millionaire Empire Maker (Unbridled); GISW millionaire Chester House (Mr. Prospector); GISW Chiselling (Woodman); and MGSW Decarchy (Distant View).
