ANNA AND MIA (Cupid) becomes the first starter for her Grade I-winning sire and is out of a stakes-winning full-sister to MSP Breathethefire (Valid Expectations). The deeper female family also includes the flashy MGSW/GISP Phantom On tour (Tour d'Or). A $50K purchase at Fasig-Tipton February in early 2020, the February foal fetched $45K at FTKOCT in the fall and was most recently hammered down for $160K at the OBS March Sale after breezing an eighth of a mile in a joint-fastest :9 4/5. She debuts against fellow firsters Topsy Turvy (Constitution), a full-sister to dual Ohio-bred SW and GSP Alexandria; and Tizplenty (Speightstown), a half-sister to MGSW & GISP Mr. Money (Goldencents).
