Owned by a partnership that includes television and radio personality Jim Rome, Mizdirection is undefeated in two starts on the unique downhill turf course at Santa Anita Park, the course and venue for the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint in 2012 and 2013.
The Mizzen Mast filly won both the Grade 3 Monrovia Stakes and the Clocker's Corner Handicap on the downhill course in 2012 and utilized that homefield advantage on Breeders' Cup day, collaring Unbridled's Note to win the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint with an electric turn of foot in the stretch.
2013 brought three straight victories for Mizdirection. Her wins included the Grade 2 Monrovia and Buena Vista Stakes, and the grade 3 Las Cienegas Stakes. After a dissapointing fifth in the Grade 1 Longines Just a Game Stakes, she headed to Santa Anita to win the 2013 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint.
