Accede (Into Mischief) dug down gamely to post a first stakes victory in Saturday’s GII Bed o’ Roses S.

Off as the 4-1 second choice, the Juddmonte homebred veered out sharply at the start and was quickly corrected by Irad Ortiz, Jr. to lead early. Third, but traveling nicely on the inside on the far turn, Accede split horses with authority in the stretch and fended off the longshot runner-up for a career best.

“She broke with good intent and I was happy with her on the lead, but if somebody wanted to go, it was fine to let them go,” winning trainer Chad Brown said. “That’s what we [Irad Ortiz, Jr.] talked about in the paddock. He worked out a great trip and the filly cooperated. The team at Juddmonte did a great job with her.”

Accede, third at second asking in last spring’s GII Eight Belles S., won her last two trips to the post at Keeneland, an allowance Oct. 14 and an optional claimer Apr. 24.

Pedigree Notes:

Accede becomes the 75th graded/group winner worldwide for Into Mischief. She is the 15th graded winner for broodmare sire Mizzen Mast. Juddmonte has enjoyed plenty of success with the leading sire’s offspring, led by promoted GI Kentucky Derby winner Mandaloun and runaway G1 Dubai World Cup winner Laurel River. Accede was produced by three-time graded winner and GISP Jibboom, who is also responsible for a Tacitus colt of 2023. Jibboom is a full sister to G1SW-HK Sea Defence. This is also the female family of 2023 GI Frank E. Kilroe Mile S. winner Gold Phoenix (Ire) (Belardo {Ire}).
