Shoplifted earns TDN Rising Star tag for Saratoga MdSpWt score
July 27, 2019
Shoplifted became Into Mischief’s fourth TDN Rising Star of 2019 on Saturday with a 4 ½-length maiden special weight tally at Saratoga.
Making his career debut, the 2-year-old colt, who was an $800,000 auction buy at the Fasig-Tipton Select 2-year-old March sale, broke very well, then took back several lengths off a pair of dueling leaders. It wasn’t until he turned into the stretch that he found his best stride, striking the front inside the furlong marker to roll home in 1:03.99 for the 5 ½-furlongs (VIDEO).
Owned by the group of Grandview Equine, Cheyenne Stables and LNJ Foxwoods, Shoplifted was bred by Machmer Hall and Carrie & Craig Brogden. Shoplifted is from the immediate family of Personal Ensign S. (G1) winner Miss Shop and True North S. (G2) winner Trappe Shot.
Into Mischief is having one of his best years at stud in 2019, with 137 individual winners, 25 more than any other sire, nine black type winners of 11 added-money events, and more than $9.2 million in progeny earnings.
