Against a field where several have high-profile connections and purple catalog pages, the Albaugh Family Stables look to be counted present with MILAN MISCHIEF (Into Mischief), their $440,000 KEESEP daughter of America’s four-time reigning champion general sire. Hailing from the female line of Irish Mare of the Year, several time European/Irish champion, and four-time High-weight runner MG1SW Kooyonga (Ire) (Persian Bold {Ire}), the Dale Romans trainee is a full-sister to SW Little Menace. Their dam is herself a half-sister to MGSW & GISP Balance the Books (Lemon Drop Kid) as well as seven-time winner, SP Photo Shoot (Giant’s Causeway). This is also the extended female family of G1SP Princess Sinead (Ire) (jeremy); MGSW & G1SP Mondragon (Brz); South African Champion 3-year-old filly, GISW Kundalini (El Gran Senor); and G1SP Jaljuli (Ire) (Jalmood).

Godolphin’s royal blue silks are carried to post here on the back of HECKLED (Hard Spun), a homebred half-sister to MGSW Pixelate (City Zip). Out of SP Speckled (Street Cry {Ire}), herself half to MGSW Skylighter (Sky Mesa)–granddam of Wet Paint (Blame)–as well as SW Cave Hill (Frosted) and the dam of GSP Meru (Sky Mesa), Heckled claims three other winning half-siblings. Michael Stidham sends her to post with a steady string of works and one off the rail for this unveiling. This is the female line of MGISW Nastique (Naskra), herself responsible for 11-time winner, Japanese multi-millionaire Nobo True (Broad Brush) and GSW Thunder Kitten (Storm Cat), dam of five Graded/Group performers including MG1SP Michita (Dynaformer) and GI Emirates Airline Dubai World Cup-placed Cat O’Mountain (Street Cry {Ire}); among others.
