Santa Anita: GEICO Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (Group 1) 6½f, 3yo+
MIZDIRECTION maintained her 100 per cent record over Santa Anita's unique downhill sprint course with a repeat success in the Turf Sprint.
Trained by Mike Puype, Mizdirection provided jockey Mike Smith with his 20th success at the Breeders' Cup in another close finish at Santa Anita.
Reneesgotzip burst from the stalls like a bullet from a gun attempting to build on her third in this race last year.
She led entering the closing stages but Mizdirection was closing under Smith and overhauled the leader to take success for a second time.
Reneesgotzip claimed second, although she had to share the position with Tightend Touchdown who deadheated for runner-up.
