Carina Mia shortens up, faces older in Ballerina


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Carina Mia faced the biggest challenge of her career when taking on Songbird and coming out second-best despite a gallant effort in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks earlier in the Saratoga meet. On Saturday, Carina Mia will face a different kind of challenge: turning back to seven furlongs and taking on older horses for the first time in the $500,000 Ballerina.
