Discreet Mischief (c, 3, Into Mischief-Brushwork, by Discreet Cat), a very solid second sprinting on debut with an 89 Beyer Speed Figure behind the highly regarded Drip (Good Magic) over a sloppy track at Fair Grounds Feb. 17, delivered a 'TDN Rising Star' performance for trainer Brad Cox to graduate impressively at second asking at Keeneland Saturday.

The 4-5 favorite jumped well and secured a perfect spot pressing in an outside second through fractions of :22.47 and :45.54. He took over on the turn for home, was in complete control as they straightened and ran up the score in the stretch to win for fun by 8 1/4 lengths. Timeout (Curlin) was second.

Discreet Mischief, a homebred for Oussama Aboughazale's Sumaya U.S. Stable, becomes the 44th 'TDN Rising Star' for the mighty Into Mischief. The unraced Darley-bred Brushwork, a daughter of MGISW Manistique (Unbridled), is also responsible for Kitten's Cat (Kitten's Joy), MSW & MGSP, $573,545; an Authentic colt of 2022 ($475,000 RNA KEESEP); and a Gun Runner colt of 2023. Brushwork brought $150,000 from International Equities Holding in foal to Kitten's Joy at the 2017 Keeneland January sale.
