Mia's Crusade looks razor-sharp in MdSpWt victory
Sunday, August 29, 2021
Mia's Crusade, a 2-year-old daughter of Greenpointcrusader, put on an impressive display in her Aug. 29 maiden special weight win at Monmouth Park, rolling home by 6 3/4-lengths to be the second winner for her sire.

The bay filly emerged from a three-way early speed duel to take the lead in the middle of the turn, then drew off at will and was geared down late to finish the 5 1/2-furlongs on 1:05.52 on a fast track.

Mia's Crusade earned $43,125 in victory for Joseph & Gayle Ioia and Chuck Spina, the latter also her trainer.

Mia's Crusade was bred by Dianne Boyken and is the second foal out of Mini Moneigh, who has a pair of stakes-winning siblings.

Greenpointcrusader, who won the Champagne S. (G1) at two, has four graded stakes-winning siblings. He stood the 2021 season at Ocala Stud for $3,500 S&N.
