Shared Belief joined the Solis/Litt Bloodstock roster after his sharp maiden debut in August of his two year-old year. Recognizing the geldings raw talent and developing potential, the son of Candy Ride was purchased from breeders Pam and Martin Wygod. Joining Solis/Litt were trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, Jim Rome's Jungle Racing, KMN Racing and George Todaro as Shared Belief closed out 2013 a perfect 3 for 3 and earning Champion Two Year-Old Colt honors.
In 2014 Shared Belief continued to dominate, taking the G2 Los Alamitos Derby before beating older males in the G1 Pacific Classic and G1 Awesome Again Stakes. He suffered his first career loss in the Breeders Cup Classic after a troubled start from the gates left him running out of real-estate at the wire. However, he bounced back quickly, displaying his rare versatility when sprinting home the winner in the G1 Malibu over 7 furlongs. 2015 brought a show down between two champions when Shared Belief faced off with 2014 Kentucky Derby winner and Horse of the Year California Chrome in the G2 San Antonio Stakes. Rolling home the winner by 1 1/2 lengths, Shared Belief went on to win the coveted G1 Santa Anita Handicap, defeating multiple G1 winner Moreno.
Over the course of three years, Shared Belief won five G1 races, earned $2,932,200 in prize money and gave his connections a trip of a lifetime.
Mizdirection came to us in 2008 at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale when Jason fell in love with her at Barn 18 and we bought her. She was intended for a client to race but fate intervened and she was put through a two year-old sale. Alex loved how she was training leading up to the sale, so we bought her again.
After a two year-old campaign that consisted of a string of minor setbacks, she was back in training at three and made a start in March with a nice second to eventual Grade 1 winner Home Sweet Aspen. Two months later she broke her maiden by an eye popping 11 1/2 lengths prompting Jim Rome's Jungle Racing to join the ownership group. Over the next two and half years Mizdirection became one of the most dominant sprinting grass fillies in the country winning 9 stakes races, 6 for 6 down the hill at Santa Anita and the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint in 2012 AND 2013. She retired with 11 wins from 17 starts and earnings of $1,719,621
