Practical Joke

Postby Shawklit Won » Mon Jul 19, 2021 5:15 pm

Practical Joke is off to a nice start as a stallion. He not only already has four 2 year old winners, but one of his sons, Wit, won a graded stakes race on Saturday. He won the Sanford Stakes at Saratoga. Maybe Practical Joke will be the next big one.

BTW, his sire is Into Mischief, who is probably the best stallion in the country right now.

Practical Joke now has twelve 2 year old winners and two stakes winners as Joker Boy won the 100K I'm Smoking Stakes on 9/4 at Del Mar. He has a stakes placed 2 year old in Tejano Twist who finished 2nd in a stakes race on 8/31 at Colonial Downs. Wit just finished 2nd in the Hopeful Stakes (G1) at Saratoga on 9/6.

His first crop was very well received at the sales and those who did the breaking/training were very high on them (and Gun Runner). Let's see what happens when they turn three as it seems that sometimes stallions like him don't have great sophomore seasons as the rest of the crop catches up to them. I'd love to see him do well, I know the people that raised him.

Competitive Edge got off to a quick start with 27 winners and now stands in Texas.
