Rome’z Mizdirection back on crazy Santa Anita chute track Sunday

Mizdirection, the Jim Rome-majority-owned 5-year-old mare who surprised the field at the Breeders’ Cup to win the Turf Sprint, is back to defend her title in Sunday’s Monrovia Stakes at Santa Anita.

Mizdirection, who drew the outside post in a field of six, has been off four weeks since her Nov. 3 victory. She won last year’s Monrovia Stakes with Garrett Gomez, but she’ll be ridden Sunday again by Mike Smith, who is 3-for-3 with her.

The complete field for the Monrovia Stakes: Curvy Cat, Corey Nakatani, 118; Byrama, Rafael Bejarano, 118; Kindle, Edwin Maldonado, 118; Givine, Tyler Baze, 118; Broken Dreams, Garrett Gomez, 118, and Mizdirection, Mike Smith, 123.
