The Carousel – A Tale of Two Elite Grads

Two Elite graduates will take part in the Carousel Stakes at Oaklawn Park tomorrow, including the G1 winner, $2.4 million mare Mia Mischief.


Mia Mischief posted an easy comeback win in her five-year-old debut for new owner Stonestreet Farm, taking a stakes level allowance over this same track and distance last month. Mia figures to have the best chance of upsetting the favorite, coming into this spot in good form while owning a 5-3-2-0 record at the Hot Springs venue.

Fellow Elite graduate Lady Suebee will also lineup in the field of eight, lining up just to Mia Mischief’s inside. The five-year-old First Defence mare was purchase for $230,000 at Keeneland November in 2018 by David Ingordo on behalf of Hronis Racing and has since captured the Tranquility Lake Stakes at Del Mar in addition two a couple of graded stakes placings for her new owners.
