Purchased by Winchell Thoroughbreds for $1,350,000 out of last year's Keeneland September Sale, EXTRA ANEJO (Into Mischief) debuts Thursday for trainer Steve Asmussen. A bay son of Superioritycomplex (Ire) (Hard Spun), herself a half-sister to MGSP Abingdon (Street Cry {Ire}), he hails from the extended family of MG1SW & American champion grass mare Islington (Ire) (Sadler's Wells), G1SW & MG1SP Greek Dance (Ire) (Sadler's Wells), GSW & G1SP Mountain High (Ire) (Danehill), and GSW New Morning (Ire) (Sadler's Wells). Extra Anejo posted three bullets out of his last four works including a five-furlong drill in :59 1/4 over this same track Oct. 3 (1/9) and gets Tyler Gaffalione in the irons.

Making his second start after a troubled trip on debut at Saratoga is Juan Valdez (Medaglia d'Oro), a $900,000 Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream Sale grad who is a half-brother to MGISW & leading sire Constitution. Dam Baffled (Distorted Humor) brought $1.8m from Don Alberto Corp. at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton Fall Mixed sale while carrying Juan Valdez and has also produced GSW Jacaranda (Congrats) and GSW Boynton (More Than Ready).
