Lukes Alley, Duke Of Mischief To Stand At Flowing Acres Farm At Fleetwood Lane In West Virginia

Flowing Acres Farm at Fleetwood Lane in Charles Town, W.V., will add Canadian champion Lukes Alley and Grade 2 winner Duke of Mischief to its roster for the 2021 breeding season, both standing for a private fee.

Lukes Alley will stand his debut season at stud in 2021, owned in partnership between Tampa-based Michael Ingrassia and Ocala-based Tom Foley of Foley Bloodstock. The 11-year-old son of Flower Alley won nine of 18 starts during his on-track career for earnings of $795,122.

He was named Canada’s champion older male of 2014 on the strength of a campaign that included victories in the Grade 2 Autumn Stakes and G3 Durham Cup Stakes. However, his biggest showcase victory came two years later when he staged a hard-closing rally to win the G1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap.

A homebred in Ontario from the program of Eugene Melnyk, Lukes Alley is out of the stakes-winning A.P. Indy mare Vaulcluse, who set a track record for a mile and 40 yards at Tampa Bay Downs when she won the Suncoast Stakes. All six of her foals to race are winners, also including the Grade 3-placed stakes winner Arrifana.

Arrifana won five of six starts racing in Maryland and New York, and Ingrassia said he hoped the sibling’s success would help clear the way for Lukes Alley in the minds of breeders in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Duke of Mischief, a 15-year-old son of Graeme Hall, comes to West Virginia after spending time at stud in Florida, Indiana, and Michigan.

Duke of Mischief won seven of 30 starts during his on-track career, and earned $1,905,747. He won the G2 Oaklawn Handicap, and picked up G3 triumphs in the Charles Town Classic Stakes, Ft. Lauderdale Stakes, and Philip H. Iselin Stakes. The horse is also stakes-placed on turf.

Bred in Florida by Marilyn McMaster, Duke of Mischief is out of the winning Real Courage mare My Lady Ameila, who is the dam of three winners from five foals to race. He is a half-brother to Grade 3 winner Lord Robyn.

From four crops of racing age and 48 starters, Duke of Mischief has sired 26 winners. Among them is Missduke it’s True, who is a two-time champion in the Dominican Republic, and a two-time group stakes winner in that country. Domestically, his runners are led by seven-time winner Foolish Prince and four-time winner Sandy Mischief.

Lukes Alley and Duke of Mischief will join Hello Broadway and Lord of Greatness on the Flowing Acres Farm stallion roster, all standing for Ingrassia in whole or partnership.
