Randomized (f, 4, Nyquist–French Passport, by Elusive Quality), a strong second behind Idiomatic (Curlin) in the 2023 GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita, upset last year’s champion older mare with a wire-to-wire victory in Saturday’s GI Ogden Phipps S. at Saratoga.

Second in her comebacker as a heavy favorite in the GII Ruffian S. at the Big A May 4, the 6-1 chance was sent to the front beneath Joel Rosario from her rail draw. Last year’s GI Alabama S. winner showed the way throughout and braced for the challenge of Idiomatic while floating wide at the top of the stretch. Randomized had plenty left from there and dug down deep in the stretch to fend off Idiomatic by a nose. It was a long way back to Pretty Mischievous (Into Mischief) in third.

Sales history: $420,000 yrl ’21 KEESEP.

Lifetime Record: 9-5-2-1.
