.Mixed Pleasure is one of the few modern day stakes winners descended from Seabiscuit. This great-great-great-grandson of the 1930’s champion was a talented and precocious two-year-old. He won the 1987 Kindergarten Stakes at Golden Gate Fields and the 1987 Ford Juvenile Stakes at Bay Meadows, not far from his famous ancestor’s former home in Northern California. Mixed Pleasure then proved himself a force to be reckoned with at graded stakes level with a second in the Hollywood Juvenile Championship Stakes (G2) at Hollywood Park and the Balboa Stakes (G3) at Del Mar. At three years old he was also stakes-placed. From 22 starts he achieved 5 wins, 6 seconds and 1 third, earning the very respectable total of $140,175. He did not sire many progeny, but those that raced were winners. Mixed Pleasure was donated to Old Friends in 2012. He settled in immediately, becoming good friends with his neighbors in the nearby paddocks and a great favorite with visitors and volunteers.
