Delaware: Wicked Mizz's talent trumps inexperience in Go for Wand


Wicked Mizz and Ageless had the least experience among the nine 3-year-old fillies in the $75,500 Go for Wand at Delaware Park on Saturday, but that didn’t stop them from finishing one-two.

With each making the fourth start of her career, Wicked Mizz caught Ageless in the stretch of the mile and 70-yard race and drew away to a 2 ¼-length score. Trained by Anthony Dutrow and ridden by Jeremy Rose, Wicked Mizz returned $16.20, and the exacta with the 4.60-1 Ageless came back at $73.10 for $1. She ran the mile and 70 yards in 1:42.32.

Ageless was involved with the pace from the start with 4-1 second choice Wait Til Dawn, prompting or setting fractions of 23.53, 47.39 and 1:12.06. She put away Wait Til Dawn and finished 1 ¾ lengths in front of third-place finisher And Why Not, who closed from last. Lady Cohiba, the 3.40-1 favorite ended up seventh.

The victory was the first in a stakes for Wicked Mizz, a Mizzen Mast filly owned by Green Lantern Stables.
