Marketing Mix Wins US Gr1 Rodeo Drive Stakes
Also at Santa Anita, Darley's multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) added a Gr1 success when 4YO mare Marketing Mix (Medaglia D'Oro-Instant Thought, by Kris S) scored a 2.25-lengths victory for trainer Thomas Proctor in the US$250,000 Gr1 Rodeo Drive Stakes (10 furlongs) for females 3YO+, over fellow 4YO mare Nereid (Rock Hard Ten-Dowry, by Belong To Me) & 3YO filly (Stormy Atlantic-Here Comes Lucinda, by Dixieland Band). A US$150,000 2009 Keeneland September graduate, Marketing Mix took her record to 7 wins (including 4 at Graded-stakes level) & 4 placings (among them the Gr1 Beverley D. Stakes & Gr1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes) from 14 starts.
