Shoplifted gets first stakes win in $400,000 Remington Springboard Mile
December 16, 2019
Into Mischief’s 2-year-old colt Shoplifted earned his first points on the Road to the Kentucky Derby Challenge with his come-from-behind win in Sunday’s $400,000 Remington Springboard Mile S. at the central Oklahoma track (VIDEO).
Owned by Grandview Equine, Cheyenne Stables LLC and LNJ Foxwoods, Shoplifted ran second in the Hopeful S. (G1) this summer and upped his earnings to $385,500 after Sunday’s big payday.
Shoplifted picked up 10 points toward a start in the 2020 Kentucky Derby (G1) and is currently fourth on the Road to the Kentucky Derby leaderboard.
Stuck behind horses for most of the trip, Shoplifted joined Embolden to take over the lead at the top of the stretch. Answer In joined the fray soon after, and the trio battled to the wire, with Shoplifted winning by a head over Answer In, and Embolden a half-length back in third.
Shoplifted was bred in Kentucky by Machmer Hall and Carrie & Craig Brogden. He sold for $800,000 at the 2019 Fasig-Tipton March Sale.
Pedigree notes from the TDN:
Shoplifted becomes the 63rd stakes winner for super-sire Into Mischief and is the first black-type performer out of five foals to race for 14-year-old dam Shopit, who was sold for $65,000 to Sallusto & Albina at last month’s Keeneland November Sale. Shoplifted shares a second dam with GSW turf sprinter Imprimis. Shop Here is a half-sister to GISW Miss Shop (Deputy Minister), GSW and sire Trappe Shot (Tapit) and Shop Again (Wild Again), the SW dam of GISW and sire Power Broker (Pulpit).
