3 Year Old Colt Into Mischief Golden Works
The typically front-running Kentucky-bred, California-based colt vied for the early lead with rapid pacesetter Palace Malice in the Kentucky Derby before being eased up late and crossing the wire in 17th, ahead of just two horses as the third betting choice.
It was only the second time in seven starts that the Into Mischief colt finished off the board, and first since running fourth, beaten just 2 ½ lengths, in the Grade 2 San Felipe in March.
Winner of the Grade 3 Delta Downs Jackpot to end his 2-year-old season and the Grade 3 Sham to begin 2013, Goldencents responded with a 1 ¼-length triumph over Flashback in the Santa Anita Derby.
Aside from the Derby, Goldencents’ only other race outside of California came last fall at Belmont Park, where he was second by five lengths to 2012 juvenile champion Shanghai Bobby in the Grade 1 Champagne.
