Mischievous Dream was the 7/2 third choice as he broke from post 3 under Joe Bravo and settled into a stalking position while saving ground. Unrequited Love posted opening fractions of :23.20 and :48.37 before beginning to drop off in the far turn.

Mischievous Dream had plenty of run but had to wait for running room until near the 1/16 pole, when she split between several rivals and shot to the lead. The Christophe Clement trainee crossed a 1/2-length clear while completing the firm turf mile in a final time of 1:38.98.

“I had a lot of horse the entire time,” Bravo said. “At first, she was hyper, but she settled and relaxed. She was in the pocket. I just had to steer her out. I thought I had room in the middle of the lane to go between horses, but I had to check big-time. For a 2-year-old filly to pick herself up after trouble like that is impressive. It happened so fast. A couple of horses ducked in and out and I was able to split them. When a horse is able to pass horses in two or three jumps, it’s fun.”

Invincible Gal, the 8/5 favorite, endured a bit of traffic trouble during her stretch rally but still got second by a 1/2-length over Tic Tic Tic Boom, the longest shot on the board at 129/1.

Mischievous Dream’s win was the second of her 3-race career and followed a fourth-place finish in the Bolton Landing Stakes. The New York-bred Into Mischief filly has now earned $99,200.

“We always thought she was a nice filly,” Clement said. “She broke her maiden impressively and we saw that she was better than she had done in her last start. She was training very well at Saratoga. That’s why we were trying to be a bit more ambitious with her and it worked out today.”

Mischievous Dream returned $9.40 to win, $4.40 to place, and $3.40 to show. Invincible Gal brought back $3.60 to place and $3.20 to show, while Tic Tic Tic Boom paid $18.80 to show.
