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 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1) in 2012 and 2013.
The Mizzen Mast filly won both the Monrovia Stakes (G3) 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 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1) with an electric turn of foot in the stretch.
