It was billed as a showdown between the up and coming Covfefe and the brilliant, older speedster Mia Mischief. It was billed as a true showdown of speed and spirit. It was billed as drama.
So much for billings.
Mia Mischief dispatched billings and drama. And, ultimately, she dispatched Covfefe in the Roxelana Stakes at Churchill Downs on Saturday, too.
Here’s a look: Through the Eyes and Lens of our very own special friend and photographer, Holly M. Smith.
