              === Mizdirection wins Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint ===
 
 Arcadia,  CA (Sports  Network)  -  Mizdirection, ridden  by  Mike Smith,  came
 flying  down  the middle  of  the  course  to  capture Saturday's  $1  million
 Breeders'  Cup Turf  Sprint at Santa Anita  Park. The win is the second of the
 weekend for Smith.
 
 Setting  the pace  in the  14-horse field  was Starspangledbanner  with Chosen
 Miracle  running second. Starspangledbanner, ridden by Joseph O'Brien, had the
 lead down the turf course and into the stretch.
 
 A wall of horses came charging at the  leader with Mizdirection surging on the
 outside.  Trained by  Mike Puype, Mizdirection ran through the stretch outside
 most  of  the  other runners  and  went  on  to  post a  3/4-length  win  over
 Unbridled's Note.
 
 Finishing third was Reneesgotzip and Great Mills hold on for fourth.
 
 Mizdirection  covered  the 6 1/2-furlongs  in a  blazing 1:11.39, just off the
 stakes record of 1:11.28.
 
 A  4-year-old  filly, Mizdirection  picked up  $540,000 with  the win and gave
 Smith his 17th career Breeders' Cup victory. On Friday, the Hall of Fame rider
 won the Ladies' Classic aboard Royal Delta.
 
 Mizdirection  has won  seven of 12 lifetime starts for more than $800,000. She
 is perfect in four starts at 6 1/2-furlongs.
 
 Mizdirection  paid  $15.80, $7.40  and $5.00.  Unbridled's Note returned $5.80
 and $4.40, and Reneesgotzip paid $7.00 to show.
